World Heritage

In 1994, the Woodland Cemetery (Skogskyrkogården) was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List of cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value. UNESCO’s decision was based on Skogskyrkogården’s qualities as a prominent example of architecture and a twentieth-century cultural landscape being formed into a cemetery. The inscription ensures the preservation and protection of Skogskyrkogården for future generations.
