Bellu Cemetery Reviews & Ratings

  • Very old thombs and beautiful funeral places.

  • It was a sad moment for me there, that's why only 4 stars. Very beautiful place otherwise.

  • A very impressive place built on the initiative of CA Rosetti on the place of the former gardens of the Bellu baron. Here was buried a large number of the personalities of the Romanian Culture as the national poet Mihai Eminescu or the great actor Toma Caragiu, the genius Constantin Tanase or the unbelievable architect GM Cantacuzino. A lot of the monuments of the graves have small or big sculptures, busts or portraits, ensembles of characters, coat of arms, small chapels or castles, etc. Here you may discover pieces of art signed by Storck, Han, Paciurea, Romarelli or Carol. The entire areal is declared patrimonial monument...
