Where Bohemians Go To Die
I recently had an opportunity to take a tour through Chicago’s Bohemian National Cemetery (5255 North Pulaski Road) in Chicago’s North Park neighborhood. While not as popular as Graceland Cemetery, this one is certainly worth a visit. Highlights include:
- The main entrance, which is a city landmark.
- Tomb of Anton Cermak, the Austro-Hungarian mayor of Chicago who took a bullet for FDR in Miami.
- The columbarium.
- The Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk mausoleum, named in honor of the founder of Czechoslovakia.
