Cemetery in the heart of the city

This giant and beautiful park gives you few calm hours in the downtown and you can visit tombs of famous poets, authors, actors, actress and politicians.

Fantastic oasis in centre of Budapest, enjoy a quiet few hours away from the hustle & bustle of the city, beautiful place & plenty of Hungarian historical figures interred here. The on site museum is not only free also but gives a marvelous insight into Hungarian mourning & funeral history beautifully presented. A must see.

Beautiful place to walk around, lots to see. The leaves and the trees and the aging statues and the Italian arcade style are make for a wonderful (and free!) 60-90 minute walk.

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.

I recently spent 5 days in Budapest and I made my way to the Kerepesi Cemetery, based on my interest in the 2nd world war and also the 1956 uprising in Hungary. I found that the history of Hungary is quite complex and I hoped that this would help me in my interest. I wasn't disappointed, it was a wonderful... More

This is such a beautiful park. The biggest memorial park in Budapest, reminiscent of Père Llachaise in Paris. The arcades are very ornate and beautiful - the Soviet part is brand new, of course - this is why Putin came here in 2015. A must see - especially to see the old funeral coaches coming down the tree-lined path. Some... More

This most important Hungarian cemetary is not very popular with turists and clearly deserves more attention. You have a feeling to be in beautiful park, tombs are rare, quite a space between them. Some tombs are real objects of art, for example Gabor Antall's one. Besides all, it is a great place to have a quiet walk in a bit... More

Probably the least disturbed place in town where I have even seen a resting eagle close to the statues of angels and black panthers by the sides of the tombs of historic figures of Hungary.

This is in many ways more like a fascinating park than a gloomy burial ground. Spacious, full of trees and birdsong it makes for a pleasant, peaceful walk as well as containing some enormous mausoleums to Hungary's more famous citizens. Particularly poignant are the rows of memorials to those killed in the abortive uprising of 1956. Take a guide book... More

Peaceful cemetery with so much history. It's absolutely huge, you could get lost for hours. It's nice and shady on a hot day, there are beautiful murals and statues and it's quiet and calm. I just wish they had more funding to keep it better maintained. Nature is taking over large parts of the burials. The ivy and invasive, aggressive... More
