The Committee, in debating the universal value of this property, concluded that the merits of Skogskyrkogården lay in its qualities as an early-20th century landscape and architectural design adapted to a cemetery. The Committee in inscribing this site stressed the importance of explaining to the public the criteria for which it was accepted as a World Heritage cultural property.
