Kerepesi Cemetery - Review
If you are looking for a conventional cemetery, then you are in for a surprise. This cemetery is the oldest in Budapest and has been preserved almost as a heritage site since time immemorial. It is spread almost over 56 hectares of land and is also one of the oldest outdoor cemeteries in the country. The first burial that took place here was in the year 1929, which was almost after 2 years of its founding. After that, a lot of Hungarian noblemen have been buried here. Famous writers, statesmen, artists, composers, architects- people of a high reputation rest here after passing away. The sculptures of the statues is worth seeing as it is done with utmost precision.

Kerepesi Cemetery, Budapest Reviews
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.
Beautiful cemetery and very peaceful. Lots of important Hungarian people are buried here. Worth going!
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.
