Kerepesi Cemetery, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review

  • A very interesting place. Recommend

  • A very nice graveyard in the town, where formerly all officials were buried. You can find tombs with historical names there.

  • A beautiful cemetery! Some parts are unfortunately very neglected, the toilet is also ugly, the neighbourhood is not the best... but still, it is worth to take a walk here for some of the statues and gravestones! Locals come here on the 1st of November, then it is the most beautiful with all those candles and flowers.

  • Quiet and silent, as expected for such a place like this. Went in autumn, for me the best period to go.

  • A beautiful, quiet, monumental memorial park. Ideal for a gentle walk far from the noises and the city
