Norra Begravningsplatsen (Northern Cemetery) is one of Stockholm’s oldest and most prestigious graveyards. Inaugurated in 1827, the cemetery is the final resting place of several Swedish nobles and other well-known citizens. From politicians to writers, to the famous chemist, inventor, and businessman Alfred Nobel.
A road that traverses the cemetery is dedicated to Nobel called, Alfred Nobels allé. His grave is fairly simple considering what his namesake now represents. A single obelisk marks the site of his burial with one word, “Nobel,” embossed across the front.
The tomb is a popular visiting spot during All Saints Eve in Sweden. During the celebration, people venture out to the cemetery to light candles and place them on graves to pay respect to those they admired.
