The Northern Cemetery in Solna municipality is a major graveyard in Stockholm county. If Lisbon has the National Pantheon for famous nationals who passed away, then Northern Cemetery in Solna is its counterpart.

Alfred Nobel, Ingrid Bergman and August Strindberg are among famous people buried there.

It’s quite near our home, a 25-minute walk from the condo. I used to walk around a lot there. Seeing gravestones in this six beautiful hectare cemetery makes me feel grateful about life and not to take it for granted.
