Stories from Croatia

Cemeteries are increasingly opening up as new spaces for tourist visits and cultural manifestations. In this context, it is very important to emphasize them as part of cultural tourism. In order to promote it, European Cemeteries Route began with the project European Cemeteries Tour in 2018.

KD Kozala Rijeka, together with its partners Gradska groblja Zagreb and Nasadi Zadar, in collaboration with ASCE and European Cemeteries Route, is the first to organize an European Cemeteries Tour in 2020.

During the tour, stories from cemeteries and cities in Croatia will be presented.
