Where Bohemians Go To Die

Bohemian National Cemetery

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.
