To reach the cemetery, you must climb steep stairs. Not for those with difficulties walking. And not on hot days unless you bring water with you. Once atop, you will have numerous photo ops. Well kept cemetery. Moreover you will have access to the Racic mausoleum built by the most famed sculptor in Croatia, and I name Ivan Mestrovic. This... More

We were here on a tour from the Royal Caribbean cruise. The town was quiet as it was a Sunday and mid November which makes a difference. However it was pleasant to walk around the peninsula. Bus station toilets were closed so find a cafe. The climb would be difficult for some people but if you can the view is... More

It is worth the walk up to the cemetery for the absolutely amazing view, but definitely explore the mausoleum too. Designed by sculptor Ivan Mestrovic it is an amazing piece of twentieth century design - simple, yet intricate and beautiful. Admission to the mausoleum costs 10 Kuna.

Worth the walk up the hill. Apparently this is number 3 in the top 10 things to do in Cavtat - you can guess, there isn't much to see in Cavtat!

Beautiful, a steep climb if you have little ones but worth it. Exceptional views of the coastline and neighbouring towns.

This is not really a tourist attraction, it is more of a place to go to be at peace with yourself and to sit and contemplate some of the lives that have gone before as marked on the grave stones.

Although you climb about 180 steep steps through the old town to get to the cemetery, it is well worth the effort. You get lovely views, and the graves themselves are interesting. There is a mausoleum at the top which was built in memory of a family who died in the 1918 flu epidemic. The architecture is amazing and it... More

A lovely cemetery at the top of the hill. A lovely walk up through the pine forest brings you to the Racic Mausoleum and the local cemetery. The whole area is well looked after and the views from there are stunning, once you get there, as the walk is very steep. The Mausoleum is worth looking at, although they do... More
