Most of the famous people of Hungary are buried here... (Exception: most of the famous Jewish people are buried at the Jewish cemetery at Kozma utca). You should go here only if you know about the people who are buried here and/or if you have someone knowledgeable with you. There is a place at the main entrance where you could... More

This place is loaded with wonderful sculptures and beautiful graves. It is right outside the main area of Budapest, accessible by tram pretty easily. It's really nice and opened until sunset. Take a stroll if you are interested in cemeteries.

Piety Museum inside is worth a visit when here, full of the funeral processions and garments. The graveyard is well laid out and has some great statues.

Unkempt, not that picturesque. Atmosphere doesn't compare to cemeteries in Paris, Berlin, Prague, for example. The 'arcade' section was unique.

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 Paths are wide but little bit outdated, so you have to walk carefully, cause rocks can be dangerous.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
