  • It was only on the last day we found out about this cemetery, which was literally for our "backs" read at Golden Park! The graveyard. Great story! I regret that you missed out on! And so I like to visit the necropolis!

  • I'd say that it is more like a park than a cemetery. If you want a quiet walk in a beautiful garden, surrounded with great sculptures you should visit Kerepesi and you wont regret it.

  • 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.
