“A well-maintained cemetery.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This is a well maintained cemetery with an added touch, as numerous Romanian national figures are buried here.
Most graves and tombs are in great shape and some looking extremely artistic.
The cemetery is easily accessible and there's also a beautiful church next to it.v

“Not just a cementery, but a cultural lesson !!!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

It is not just a cementery, it is a cultural monument because here we can find the ashes of ilustrous poets, writers, political figures. It is very well put in scene, the alleys make sense, it's like taking a walk through history. Gotta visit it!

“Something more than an ordinary cemetery”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

A cemetery where well-known personalities among Romanians are buried, just opposite the metro station. If it wasn't for the interesting tombstones (and there are several of them) it wouldn't be something worth visiting, especially if you don't know a bit about the people buried there

“Charming, misterious place”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

It is the oldest , most famous cemetery in Bucharest, place for rest for most of Romanian poets, writers, artists etc. The burial places are spectacular due to the architecture of the tombs. There are statues and even mini churches dating from XiXth century or even older. A lot of legend regarding the life od the local VIPs buried there. Unfortunately, the visit does not include a guide, so be sure you go with someone that knows the place.

“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..
