Kerepesi is more than a cemetery. It's laid out more like a park than a cemetery. It's also very peaceful, despite being close to a busy road.
For a long time it was closed to public burials and only high ranking and policial official were allowed to be buried there. Nearly all have a statue/monument as a gravestone.
As you go in, on the left the first graves are a memorial to some of those killed in 1956 uprising - the people were all so young.
The two great mausaleums are very ornate and there are some strange statues throughout the cemetery.
Look out for the woman holding a skull, and the large bird headstone (goto the mausaleums, turn left and walk to the end of the avenue of trees)
Easily spent 2-3 hours wandering around, listening to the birds singing, taking photos and enjoying the works of art.
