Create an itinerary including Žale Cemetery
An important monument of architectural and cultural heritage, Žale Cemetery contains the gravesites of many noted Slovenians, including that of architect Joze Plecnik. The cemetery's finest features remain its chapels, ornamental gates, and colonnades, the work of Plecnik. Plecnik himself is buried at the this site, so you can pay homage to him in the main area A.

  • Hard to star this one, it's a cemetery. A serene place, with lots of green and many small animals that don't care they live on the burial grounds :)
  • Considering that this is a cemetery it is hard to star it. However it is a green and piece full location with plenty of green areas. Three is all infrastructure required
