To promote European cemeteries as a fundamental part of the heritage of the humanity.

The Eastern Cemetery in Gothenburg (Gothenburg, Sweden)

The Eastern cemetery in Gothenburg was designed by architect J. H. Strömberg and was inaugurated on November 16, 1860.

Special attention must be paid to the hill on the west side, with its magnificent mausoleums, most of which commemorate late Gothenburg citizens in the merchant, manufacturing and shipping trades.
