Stroll through a park and learn about Hungarian history from the multitude of statues and mausoleums at Kerepesi Cemetery. This famed cemetery is one of the largest in Europe, dating back to the mid-19th century. It's the final resting place of many important Hungarians, including politicians, artists, philosophers, and scientists. The gravestones and monuments are true works of art, some covered in vines. The grounds feature a lot of greenery that adds to the overall atmosphere. Be sure to wear good walking shoes if you plan to spend a bit of time exploring. There is no admission fee for visiting the cemetery.

  • I don't usually visit cemeteries, but finding myself around, I wanted to make a short visit, since in about a month we will be also the commemoration of the dead. It is the first cemetery I visit here in Hungary but I hit the General State of disrepair in which virtually all the graves, from the simplest ones to those which, I think, are of families known as landowners; all covered by Brambles and weeds, debris falling, etc. Even sadder than he should.

  • Huge cemetery with many famous Hungarians, but their tombs look like monuments to the size

  • If you like calm (in a cemetery, it makes a little sense), the statues and walks, are you going to walk there. If not, go your way; you don't miss nothing exceptional!

  • Feels like a really historic place that's in the process of being taken over by nature. Not the most stunning thing in the city - but worth a visit if you have the time.
  • Nicest cemetery, and maybe nicest park in Budapest. Take a walk here in the autumn, enjoy the colours and chipmunks crossing your path. The place also holds the Hungarian Parthenon, resting place of Hungary's greatest artists and politicians.
  • It is more like a museum with a huge and well maintained park than cemetery. Worth to see in every season. This place is hidden from the eyes, not too close to the centre, but only 2-3 corners from the Keleti station.
  • One of my favorite places in Budapest for autumn photography
  • I feel like not too many tourists come here, but I think it is a beautiful place to visit.
