  • Kerepesi Cemetery - easily accessible from Keleti Pályaudvar metro stop - is probably more attractive in spring and autumn, given its park-like setting. In early February, most of the trees are bare, ...  more »
  • The cementery is very spacious which make it very calm. There are many trees so you feel like you are outside the city. The cripts and statues are very beautiful, they are more like monuments. I liked...  more »
  • If I can when I visit the cities do even a side trip to a cemetery, because it gives you understanding of aspects of the culture and history of the country you're visiting. Here in Budapest I happened at Kerepesi Cemetery, a huge park where the cemetery spaces are interspersed with lawns and tree-lined avenues. The decadent hurtled accentuated by harsh climate and gray of the day.

  • A beautiful, quiet, monumental memorial park. Ideal for a gentle walk far from the noises and the city
  • 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.
  • Gyönyörű környezetben hatalmas temető sok-sok híresség nyughelyével. Szimplán sétálni is megéri eljönni.
