  • Absolutely beautiful cemetery with some great history. Grab a map/information brochure at the front entrance before walking around so you can learn as you stroll. There is a museum as well, open until 5. I missed it, but it looks interesting.
  • I think It should be on 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.
