“Joined a Relative visiting Family grave”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

One of the oldest in the Romanian Capital, this very big Cemetery has lots of very imposing Tombstones and Family Burial Chambers dating back to the early 19th Century...many Old trees adorning its alleys and sitting on its benches it does provide a feeling of serenity in the midst of the bustling surrounding traffic..

“Famous Romanian people cemetery”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

It is to be seen, but in order to feel it you should have some knowledge of the Romanian culture. One stone has a wonderful saying:"Passer- by, here I am resting and you're reading; how good would be if you would be resting and me reading!.

“Funerary Art at it's best”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

My review sounds odd perhaps...but by virtue of my work I visit the cemetery very often (we supplied few monuments there). It is a very interesting and relaxing place in the middle of the busy capital...specially in the summer time.Cool and peaceful...with some fantastic works of funerary art.
