Best for Escapists - Expert review of Kerepes Cemetery
Call me quirky, but the Kerepes Cemetery is one of my favourite spots in the city. Its 60 hectares are lined with gravel paths and shady chestnut trees, while on the gravestones are carved some of the most significant names you’ll find in the pages of Hungary’s history books. It was founded in 1847; look out in particular for the elaborate mausoleums of statesmen Lajos Kossuth, Lajos Batthyány and Ferenc Deák, who played such a leading role in 19th-century nationalist politics.
