National Cemetery in Martin
More than three hundred artists, writers or important national figures have their final resting place in Martin. The place for the National Cemetery was not selected at random. In the 19th century, Martin was the centre of Slovak culture. There are unusual monuments and tombstones in the cemetery that remind us of the lives of the deceased, such as the grave and statue of painter Martin Benko with a palette in his hand, or a memorial of Andrej Kmeť with an open book.
Did you know that... ?The earthly remains of Martin Kukučín were transferred to the National Cemetery from Zagreb, as well as the remains of Janko Kráľ from Zlaté Moravce, the remains of Janko Jesenský from Bratislava, the remains of Jozef C. Hronský from Argentina, and the remains of Gorazd Zvonický from Italy.
