Well, should one recommend a cemetery as a tourist attraction? Those who like cemeteries, sculptures, history, and/or are photographers will enjoy this one. I wouldn't recommend it to people who don't enjoy walking in such places. Many important historical figures are buried here, though most of them are not known worldwide. The huge communist monuments are also interesting. Take your... More

The cemetery is a few minutes walk from Keleti station. A helpful gent at the office handed me an English language map as there were some graves I wanted to visit. It's a large cemetery park and many of the good, bad and ugly of Hungarian history are buried here. There are some amazing memorials. I particularly liked the artists'... More

Situated near the main train /railway station. Huge park with paved walkways! The headstones are so beautiful, masterpieces! Not a usual place for a tourist to visit. If you dont want to think of it as a cemetery, then consider it a park with beautiful memorials.

Kerepesi Cemetery is situated behind the Keleti Railway Station. Surrounded by walls, wide space that looks more like park than cemetery. Paths are wide but little bit outdated, so you have to walk carefully, cause rocks can be dangerous. No matter you are at the cemetery, I have to say it is beautiful. Large, clean statues makes you feel you... More

At the entrance there will be some Hungarian gentlemen. I said "english" and was handed a photocopy of a map of the cemetery with points of interest. For history buffs if you are just inside the entrance take a quick left and you will be at the Soviet Military Parcel. Very cool. Shades of Cold War espionage as a gentleman... More

The Kerepesi Cemetery is well worth a short detour from Central Pest for those with an interest in the history of this fascinating country in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Of particular interest are the Stalinist 'Pantheon of the Working Class' memorials, now looking sad, neglected and perhaps an embarrassment to modern Hungary. Nearby are well tended but modest memorials... More

This is not a so famous cemetery, but there is a lot of monuments concerned to II World War and comunist period.

the Soviet section alone is so interesting, but then as we kept walking through this huge cemetery, we saw amazing sculptures and gravestones everywhere. some, along the sides, have fallen into disrepair, but many are maintained well and made us feel very humbled. definitely worth the trip.

This is one of the nicest old cemeteries that I have seen. It is practically a huge open-air art collection with a lot of extremely beautiful stone or bronze statues and ensembles dedicated to long series of important names of the Hungarian culture and history. Great place to visit if you enjoy romantic art from the 19th century and early... More

We were alone inside, on the 1st of January 2015. It has a fantastic creepy atmosphere. The walk on the main central street is really nice. On the right you can find the grave of artists, there is a beautiful woman with theatreal masks. All along then columns and two cupolas with golden mosaics. On the right follow the street... More
