Kaknäs Djurkyrkogård

The Kaknäs pet cemetery[a] got its start when the dog Nero - companion to the author August Blanche[b] (1811-1868) - was moved from his original burial place to this site near the water on the eastern edge of Gärdet. This reinterment touched the hearts of many in Stockholm when it happened, and people started burying their own beloved pets near Nero's grave, and so did the pet cemetery come to be.

The cemetery was officially closed in 1940, but people kept burying their pets. Finally, in 1993, it opened again, and since 1995 it has been managed by Stockholms Kennelklubb[c].
