UNESCO world heritage – woodland cemetery

There are more spectacular UNESCO world heritages around, but I do like dignity of this cementery in the southern suburbs of Stockholm. It was constructed in the beginning of last century with the aim to blend nature and architecture into a whole. It’s still in use, about 2000 persons find their final resting place here every year.
