Uppsala Old Cemetery (Uppsalas Gamla Kyrkogård in Swedish) is located at Kungärdet approximately 500 meters west of the city center in Uppsala. It is located within a stone's throw from Uppsala Cathedral. The Cemetery is quite large. The total area is approximately one square kilometer.

It is not a well-known tourist attraction in the city of Uppsala. Nevertheless it contains some fine and lovely gravestones which are considered some masterpieces of art! Among the famous personalities buried at Uppsala Cemetery includes the graveyard of Dag Hammarskjöld, a former secretary general of the United Nations. A small Orthodox Church is located inside the Uppsala Old Cemetery. Please flip through our photographs above to see some lovely pictures of the cemetery!
