Skogskyrkogården, or The Woodland Cemetery, was created between 1917 and 1940 by the architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz. On a pine-covered ridge, they shaped a sacred outdoor space with several small chapels that blend in with nature.

The architects designed the entire cemetery, from the landscaping to the smallest light. The mourning experience forms the basis of the design, while the focus is on the scenery and nature’s ability to relieve the sorrows of grief.

Today, it is globally considered one of the most important creations of modern architecture. The Skogskyrkogården was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994.
