Zentralfriedhof - Vienna

Built in Jugendstil and designed as interconfessional cemetery right from the start. It is one of the largest cemeteries of Europe both in size and number of graves. Many famous composers are burried there (various members of the Strauss family, Mahler, Schubert, Beethoven ...) as well as great minds such as Boltzmann.

The location is at the fringe of the city still it has an exceptionally good direct connection to the airport (13 min ride, every 30 min) ... whyever one would need such a thing ...

The interior of the St. Bromäus church is an especially fine example of Viennese Jugendstil

The mortuary

More opulent and honourable graves come in all kind of shapes and sizes:
(Here: grave of Carl Ritter von Ghega, the architect of the Semmering railway, the first high alpine railway, connecting Vienna and Graz)

A typical row of regular graves:

As it is an operational cemetery, great arists still get honourable graves there, a recent one is the one for Udo Jürgens, RIP. Not surprisingly it comes in the form of a piano covered in white cloth, put to rest forever.

Technically not within the cemetery but right across the street from it is the crematorium of Vienna with a surrounding urnfield. I was not aware that expressiniosm is also an architectural style. But Wikipedia says the building is built in this style with oriental influences. Whatever, I do think it looks somehow special but can't figure out what it is exactly that fascinates me. What makes it even more interesting is, that it is integrated in a former palace ground. The little to barely known "Schloß Neugebäude", which was the predecessor of Schloss Schönbrunn. The remains of the palace building still exist fürther back but parts of it were dismantled already when Schönbrunn was built and the rest of any resemblance to a palace was destroyed when it was used as barracks or stables. Still, the walls surrounding the palace grounds still exist and they are nowadays a frame for crematorium and urnfield.

Recoleta Cemetery - Buenos Aires





La Recoleta Cemetery (Spanish: Cementerio de la Recoleta) is a cemetery located in the Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It contains the graves of notable people, including Eva Perón, presidents of Argentina, Nobel Prize winners, the founder of the Argentine Navy, and a granddaughter of Napoleon. In 2011, the BBC hailed it as one of the world's best cemeteries, and in 2013, CNN listed it among the 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world. The monks of the Order of the Recoletos arrived in this area, then the outskirts of Buenos Aires, in the early eighteenth century. The cemetery is built around their convent and a church, Our Lady of Pilar (Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Pilar), built in 1732. The order was disbanded in 1822, and the garden of the convent was converted into the first public cemetery in Buenos Aires. Inaugurated on 17 November of the same year under the name of Cementerio del Norte (Northern Cemetery), those responsible for its creation were the then-Governor Martin Rodríguez, who would be eventually buried in the cemetery, and government minister Bernardino Rivadavia. The 1822 layout was done by French civil engineer Próspero Catelin, who also designed the current facade of the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral. The cemetery was last remodeled in 1881, while Torcuato de Alvear was mayor of the city, by the Italian architect Juan Antonio Buschiazzo.

Chacarita Cemetery - Buenos Aires





This cemetery is in the barrio or district of Chacarita, in the western part of Buenos Aires. Its main entrance is on Avenida Guzmán. The cemetery owes its existence to a yellow fever epidemic in 1871, when existing cemeteries were strained beyond capacity (the upscale La Recoleta Cemetery refused to allow the burial of victims of the epidemic). Students of the College of San Carlos appropriated 5 hectares (12 acres) in the adjoining Colegiales area for this purpose, but had their facility closed by the city in 1886. The New Chacarita Cemetery began to function in 1887 and was formally designated as such in 1896. Chacarita Cemetery has designated areas for members of the Argentine artistic community, including writers, prominent composers and actors. The late Justicialist leader and former President Juan Perón was buried here until his remains were relocated in 2006 to a mausoleum in his former home in San Vicente.

The Mexican city of Culiacan is home to some of the most beautiful mausoleums ever built for the most infamous drug lords of the country.
