Around All Saints’ Day, thousands of people visit the Woodland Cemetery (Skogskyrkogården) in Stockholm. The national holiday is celebrated with candles. Lots and lots of candles. Do not miss a visit to The Woodland Cemetery if you’re in Stockholm around November 3rd.
When The Woodland Cemetery, Skogskyrkogården, was founded at the beginning of the 1900s, the aim was to create something special, something original – a cemetery blending nature and architecture into a seamless whole.
Today, The Woodland Cemetery (Skogskyrkogården) is considered one of the most important creations of modern architecture, and is even inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
