Why locals love it

Skogskyrkogården is a picturesque cemetery designed by the celebrated Swedish architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz. It’s set in tranquil pine woodland just 14 minutes from T-Centralen subway station.

Why you should visit it

Featuring an inspiring blend of art, architecture and nature, it’s easy to see why Skogskyrkogården is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Open 24 hours a day throughout the year, it’s the perfect place for long walks and peaceful contemplation.

Special tip

Look out for the graves of Greta Garbo and Gunnar Asplund!
