The great cemetery Skogskyrkogården - the woodland cemetery in south Stockholm.
It was listed as World Heritage in 1994.
Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz created this cemetery in an architect competition in 1914, in which the proposal was called "Tallum". The cemetery was outbuilt in pace with the need until 1940.
There are several chapels and other constructions to visit: Crematory building, the Woodland Chapel, The Resurrection Chapel, The Groves of Meditation and Remembrance, the big cross, the landscaping, the burial ground.
