UNESCO - Skogskyrkogården, Sweden

I guess it is normally not expected to find a cemetery on the whs list...but here it is, and quite a serene sunset view at that :) Again a lucky catch in the forum tag, thank you Merja!
Skogskyrkogården is the Stockholm cemetery created between 1917 and 1920 by two young architects, Asplund and Lewerentz, on the site of former gravel pits overgrown with pine trees. The design blends vegetation and architectural elements, taking advantage of irregularities in the site to create a landscape that is finely adapted to its function. What can't be seen here are the headstones situated among the trees...I must say, a great place for eternal rest..!
