SkogskyrkogÎrden, Stockholm Overview

SkogskyrkogÎrden is one of the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Stockholm. The cemetery was built by Asplund and Lewerentz, between 1917-1920. The forest cemetery is an architectural masterpiece, using the natural landscape and the trees around to create a beautiful setting.

The cemetery actually came up as a result of a competition, in which the model submitted by the two young artists was selected. Built in a forest, surrounded by pine trees, the cemetery is famous for the use of functional architecture, as well as merging it with the Nordic style. The sculptures, the pond, the buildings, and the entire landscape, were carefully chosen and designed by the architects to guarantee perfection. You can find out all about the architects, and the details of the cemetery through tours and exhibitions.
