Kerepesi Temető, the Père Lachaise of Budapest

Here some pictures I took during one of  my last visits in Budapest, at the famous cemetery of Kerepesi, founded in 1847 and one of the oldest cemeteries in Hungary. I like to take a tour of  the old cemeteries of the European cities, because of their mysterious fascination. Usually there are some interesting sculptures and  if you are careful you can learn  something more about the historical figures of the city where you are. In fact  Kerepesi is one of the biggest National Pantheons in Europe and the biggest outdoor statue park with its area of about 56 hectares, comparable with  the Père Lachaise in Paris.
