“One of the best places to visit in town, full of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

All important persons in Romanian history are buried there, including political, writers, actors. A lot of very valuable marble carvings and bronze statues. A very clean place, worth to visit.

“Not tourist friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I was having a great time touring the cemetery. Taking pictures of all the old, beautiful, and unique headstones, statues and monuments. Until one of the guards (yes, there are guards patrolling a cemetery) came up to me and told me that I was not supposed to be taking pictures.

“The Romania's Père Lachaise Cemetery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

The Bellu Cemetery is the second best known cemetery in Romania, after the Happy One in Săpânţa. In bellu cemetery are buried a lot of personalities like Mihai Eminescu, Ion Luca Caragiale, Nichita Stanescu, Henri Coanda and many others. Most of the graves' statues are artworks. To get there you should take the Metro M2 to Eroii Revolutiei Station and you can see it from there.
