Overview

With its 170 years history the Fiumei Road Cemetery has by now become a cultic place just like Père-Lachaise in Paris. However, instead of the graves of Molière, Chopin and Jim Morrison, here you can see those of Ady, Jókai, Arany, Kossuth, Erkel, Faludy, Jancsó and Imre Kertész. Besides being the resting place of the prominent personalities of the Hungarian nation since 1849, the cemetery preserves the imprints of different historical eras. You will find the largest number of important personalities of the Hungarian history and culture buried here. Most of the tombs have historic value since they are works of reputable architects and sculptors. The grave park, that resembles an arboretum lies on 56 hectares, is also known for its rich flora and fauna. The unique graveyard has been under the management of the National Heritage Institute since 2016.

I enjoy walking through cemeteries to see all the incredible tombstone and mausoleum artwork they just don't make them like they used to. There are many famous people buried here.

It turned out that I am drawned mostly to the silent places in all of my trips. This cemetery hasn't been an exeption. It is beautiful old and very well kept. If you need a lot of green around you, go here and enjoy.

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

The cementery is very spacious which make it very calm. There are many trees so you feel like you are outside the city. The cripts and statues are very beautiful, they are more like monuments. I liked the fact that tumbs are not all packed...More
