The Woodland Cemetery

The Woodland Cemetery, called “Skogskyrkogården” in Swedish, is a cemetery located in the south of central Stockholm. Its design, by Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz, reflects the development of architecture from Nordic Classicism to mature functionalism. The cemetary was completed around 1920. It has some notable interments, for example it is the final resting place of Greta Garbo. In 1994, Skogskyrkogården was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
