"Navje" Ljubljana is a actually a really nice cemetery to visit. I bet that more than half the local haven't even been here - why not challenge yourself?

As morbid as it sounds, this cemetery is actually a really nice place to visit. I bet that more than half of the natives haven't even been here so you might find this a challenge.

Built just before the Second World War, architect Plecnik had the idea to create a monumental shrine housing tombs of the most deserving Slovenians, also called a Slovenian pantheon. It was given the name Navje, derived from Slavic mythology. It consists of an open, arcaded, classical building rebuilt from an old pavilion and a surrounding memorial park.

Just behind the main train and bus station, this calming and relaxing place invites you to go for a short stroll between the tombs. It is no problem to sit on the grass and read and when it gets dark it can be a perfect place to play hide and seek.

Winter opening times are valid till the end of April.
