  • Really worth it. We have sure an hour walked around in a haven of peace and sometimes architectural delights.

  • It is not the father Lachaize, but a huge cemetery with very impressive vaults. Many graves are not maintained and are covered with Ivy.

  • Although a cemetery is a place where it doesn't go much, this is very monumental. Many statues, very nice there most of them (with decanted to one side or another political symbolism). Is very wide with broad avenues. If you're not a lover of the Holy field, well worth a visit.

  • 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.
