Really enjoyed our walk on Fuimei Cemetery. It's really big so you can spend many hours if you wish. It's really cool to see the graves of all those famous Hungarian people. Most of them I only know as street names or names of the...More

Fiumei Road Cemetery - also known as Kerepesi Cemetery - is probably best described as Hungary's answer to Père Lachaise. That should give you some idea of what to expect. First off, it's HUGE - 140 acres! You can get there by Metro (every ride...More

If you are a history fan than it is worth to visit, as a lot of famous Hungarians has got their graves there. Otherwise, this is alittle bit outside of any main attraction

Kerepesi Cemetery - easily accessible from Keleti Pályaudvar metro stop - is probably more attractive in spring and autumn, given its park-like setting. In early February, most of the trees are bare, except for the ubiquitous balls of parasitic mistletoe feeding off the limbs of...More

Beautiful place to walk around, lots to see. The leaves and the trees and the aging statues and the Italian arcade style are make for a wonderful (and free!) 60-90 minute walk.

I'd say that it is more like a park than a cemetery. If you want a quiet walk in a beautiful garden, surrounded with great sculptures you should visit Kerepesi and you wont regret it.

I recently spent 5 days in Budapest and I made my way to the Kerepesi Cemetery, based on my interest in the 2nd world war and also the 1956 uprising in Hungary. I found that the history of Hungary is quite complex and I hoped...More

Hi, just to let you know that I have never had reason to be afraid or even apprehensive whilst visiting the KEREPESI cemetery. People are wandering around looking at the gravestones and it is a very open space. Apparently in... More
