Skogskyrkogarden, Stockholm, Sweden
Skogskyrkogarden is a peaceful woodland cemetery built in the 20th century not far from the center of Stockholm. This picturesque cemetery designed by the famous Swedish architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz is also a UNESCO Heritage Site.

Its beautiful garden and interesting architecture make it a great place for long peaceful walks as it’s very easy to forget that Skogskyrkogarden is basically a working cemetery with numerous funerals taking place each week. If you go on a guided tour, you will be taken inside the chapels which are closed to casual visitors, and hear extremely interesting stories.
