Probably the least disturbed place in town where I have even seen a resting eagle close to the statues of angels and black panthers by the sides of the tombs of historic figures of Hungary.

This is in many ways more like a fascinating park than a gloomy burial ground. Spacious, full of trees and birdsong it makes for a pleasant, peaceful walk as well as containing some enormous mausoleums to Hungary's more famous citizens. Particularly poignant are the rows of memorials to those killed in the abortive uprising of 1956. Take a guide book... More

Peaceful cemetery with so much history. It's absolutely huge, you could get lost for hours. It's nice and shady on a hot day, there are beautiful murals and statues and it's quiet and calm. I just wish they had more funding to keep it better maintained. Nature is taking over large parts of the burials. The ivy and invasive, aggressive... More

We went to the cemetary in the hope of finding one of my Grandpa's friends buried there - it turns out he was elsewhere in the city (we found him on our last day!) - but the cemetery is beautiful. Some incredibly grand stone work and well kept grounds.

A beautiful cemetery that is perhaps most striking during Fall, but is nonetheless worth the visit at any time of year on account of its collection of sculptures. Most graves and architecture and works of art in themselves and make up for a very nice walk out (especially for photographers). Highly recommended for tombstone tourists.

Soon as you walk in you will hear nothing, just the birds tweeting and squirrels rustling in bushes. This cemetery/ park is very well maintained. The tombstones that you will see are amazing, sculptures and works of art.

We visited Kerepesi Cemetery under the impulse of the moment. I've read something about it before, we noticed when looking at the map that it was right next to where we were at that moment and off we'd go. It was a sunny afternoon and so we spent nearly 3 hours wandering abround the old cemetery, looking at statues, wondering... More

I went because the coments were rather positive and because I was staying more than a week in Budapest. I recommand this place but only if you, also, stay several days. This cemmetary is located in a huge park which makes the visit different than what you are used to. Sculptures are sometimes spectacular. You have a part of the... More
