Fiumei Road Cemetery, Hungary’s most prestigious place of burial, has been a special site of national remembrance ever since it was opened.
Every era of the past century and a half has left its mark on the almost sixty-hectare site: revolutions and compromises, wars and peace treaties, demonstrations and quiet remembrance are all represented in this area, enclosed with a stone wall, by Fiumei Road.
Even the greatest Hungarians considered it important to have a cemetery that was not only a place for remembering the dead, but also somewhere to pause for thought, grow quiet and unwind. This cemetery is an arboretum and statue park, memorial site and graveyard, all at the same time. Indeed, it is so much more than just a graveyard.
