Some people may find the idea of wandering around cemeteries a bit odd. I always visit them when visiting new cities. This one is open until 5 and is a metro ride out of the centre but fairly easy to find. There are beautiful tree lined leaf strewn avenues, and some all kinds of tombstones spanning centuries. The cemetery is... More

This cemetery is not far from keleti train station. It is a big cemetery surrounded by a wall. Entrance is free and is easy to reach on foot or by subway. There is one big entrance. The setup is quite specious so you can find yourself alone amongst the graves quite easily. It all has the apearance of a park... More

Every time I am in Budapest I am returning to this beautiful place. The oldest and the largest cemetery in Budapest just does not look like cemetery, it is more like park. Monuments are so amazing, some bizarre, some grotesque, some insane... This placeis easy to find. Go to the Keleti station, than you can walk or take tram 24,... More

It is a bit out of the way but it's nothing like any other place of interest. The graves are both beautiful and haunting with a wide spectrum of both. It's very large do give yourself plenty of time to go round it and find the famous graves and memorial.

I often visit cemeteries when I travel, but I don't normally tell others to do so. This is different though, this place is so beautiful; I don't think I have seen anything like it before. It is like a forest in the city, with amazing sculptures everywhere. Make sure to take the time to walk around and absorb everything. Even... More

We walked to the cemetery from one of the stops on the hop-on hop-off bus tour. It was an interesting visit. There is a museum located in the cemetery with a collection of funerary artifacts.

This is my 5th trip to Budapest,but the first time I was aware of the Kerepesi Cemetery. I went on a warm sunny day. The man at the gate gave me an English map of the grounds (140+ acres), and I wandered among grave stones, monuments and mausoleums for three hours, completely absorbed in the history of this place. The... More

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.
