  • Kozma cemetery buried the Jews of Budapest area. They seemed very well managed, there is only one small salons and most of them are locked and can be grassy weeds. If anything is a fairly large scale, Hungary's Jewish community before World War II, you can imagine how keossneunji.

  • One of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Europe is the Kozma Street Cemetery, located next to Újköztemető (New Public Cemetery) in suburb Budapest. This is also the largest Hungarian Jewish cemetery, which opened in 1861, and has more than 300,000 graves. Near the entrance stands a holocaust monument that was built by the famous architect and Olympic swimming champion Alfréd Hajós.
  • Nice, peaceful, historical cemetery. Should be much better maintained.
