  • Its so worth going and seeing if you can get in. But you really need to stay on the path, because there are numerous open graves..... and no one will be there to save you if you tumble in!! Its spooky and sad all at the same time, the crumbling graves & mausoleums just make you want to cry.
  • Strange thing is to classify a cemetery. What should be the decisive criterion? How spectacular? Interesting? This is beautiful in the ruins of the Temet. There is a fantastic atmosphere here. This is where the Jewish-Hungarian past is resting here., főrangs, ministers, industrials, artists, professors, the color and flower of the country's intellectual living. They are building, renovative, many workers have come--gone in it. But there is a loneliness, intimate moments, for whom one can come. An important place to be seen!
