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.
