Kerepesi Cemetery Reviews & Ratings
This place has special place in my heart. When I feel alone and lonely then I visit this place. I realize that our life is nothing just a drop of a water in this vast ocean of the peoples. Really worth visiting because you can see the burial place of many important persons of the Hungarian history here. Specially like to thanks to government for making this place so beautiful and peaceful. If you have any problems then visit this place it will obviously give you some calmness and your mind will become more peaceful. My best place in this lovely city.
I think It shouldon everybody's bucket list, who all are visiting Budapest. Wonderful architecture and contains a lot of stories in it. You will find burial from ancient time till present. All the contemporary significant or Paramount personalities are buried here. I didn't expect a graveyard to be so great but it failed my expectations. Spread over a very large area. Very quiet and touching. Has a good green lawn. I really liked it.
If you are visiting Budapest, dont miss this place. It was an amazing experience. Read about Deak Ferencz, Kossuth Lajos, Arany Janos and many other important figures` lives before coming. Also do not miss the interactive information board near the entrance. You learn a lot about Hungary`s history. You can also get a free english map at the entrance.
Huge, really green! It is quite interesting as it has many people of historical relevance buried there, but also because of the many different mausoleums and tombs. There are some that are truly works of art.
Quite underrated attraction (not indicated on the two maps I had), but a must see. It's both a beautiful park and a piece of Hungarian history.
