Overview

With its 170 years history the Fiumei Road Cemetery has by now become a cultic place just like Père-Lachaise in Paris. However, instead of the graves of Molière, Chopin and Jim Morrison, here you can see those of Ady, Jókai, Arany, Kossuth, Erkel, Faludy, Jancsó and Imre Kertész. Besides being the resting place of the prominent personalities of the Hungarian nation since 1849, the cemetery preserves the imprints of different historical eras. You will find the largest number of important personalities of the Hungarian history and culture buried here. Most of the tombs have historic value since they are works of reputable architects and sculptors. The grave park, that resembles an arboretum lies on 56 hectares, is also known for its rich flora and fauna. The unique graveyard has been under the management of the National Heritage Institute since 2016.

This is an oasis of quiet in an otherwise busy area of the city. I think one or two of the reviewers may have confused this cemetery with others - most of the natives call it the Kerepesi cemetery. It is a quiet, well laid...More

Incredible views of the city and well worth the walk. Best route up from Gellert Hotel through the park, see the ladies selling embroidery on the benches. Excellent monuments and 360 views.

I was blown away by the sheer beauty of this place and I’m so glad I made the walk here. Everywhere you turn are vines and flowers, tall towering trees and gravestones drowning with character. Nestled away just outside of the busy city is this...More

This cemetery is more of a memorial park, lots of graves, mausoleums and monuments - each has it's own story behind. There aren't lots of tourists there, so you will be able to wonder around peacefully. The entrance is free and you can take a...More

Lots of beautiful monuments in this graveyard. The graveyard itself is quite massive but if you just want to focus on the big monumental graves you can visit it all in about an hour and it's a very pleasan stroll among beautiful tombs.
