Kozma Cemetery, Budapest

3.6
The Kozma Street Cemetery is the biggest Jewish cemetery of Budapest, Hungary. It is located next to the New Public Cemetery (Újköztemető).
The Jewish cemetery, one of the largest in Europe, is well known for its unusual monuments and mausoleums. Unusually for a Jewish cemetery, these include sculpted human figures and elaborate mausoleums in a variety of styles, most notably several mausoleums in the art nouveau or Jugendstil style.
Kozma Street Cemetery was opened in 1891 by the Neolog Jewish community of Budapest. It is the largest Jewish cemetery of Budapest as well as being one of the biggest of Europe. During its history it has been the burial place of more than 300,000 people. It still serves the Hungarian Jewish community, which is the third largest in Europe.
The green tile-clad mausoleum of the Schmidl family by Ödön Lechner and Bela Lajta, drawing its inspiration form Hungarian folk art, is considered an important example of Magyar-Jewish architecutral style, as is the domed cemetery chapel by Bela Lajta.

  • The territory of the Terminal to the Blaha Lujza ter side stop by tram 28 direct access to Kozma Street Jewish cemetery, the gate to the last stop. You'll want to make sure that the main gate is open. Walking around a little bit forward, then turn to the right of the poikkitielle, which can be reached ortodoksijuutalaisen at the cemetery gate. This cemetery barely many tourist knows, as it is located on the edge of the large cemeteries of Budapest, at the extreme, a little hidden. The place is not the same pomp as the neighbouring Jewish cemetery in the country, but in my own vaatimattomuudessaan. There is free Wi-Fi and no strict tradition, due to the funeral monuments. When I visit the cemetery, at the far end on the right side of the fence was felled illegally, to the extent that the means of Kozma Street Jewish cemetery at large was hassle-free. For who wants to see both I recommend you first go by Orthodox and exit through the large cemetery, which sees the entire spectrum of Jewish culture vivahderikkaasti of a bygone era. They are the most impressive mausoleumit and headstones remain along while walking to cue inside through the. The cemetery one of the three largest Jewish, haudattuja at least 300 000. Part of the cemetery really low he turns over, almost impenetrable ryteikköä. The main entrance to the vierusta, however, commendable condition. The Jewish community in the course of its normal use to this day. Please bear in mind that on Friday afternoon, it is useless to go to, or Saturday-Sabbath. As well as Jewish holidays may make the trip too.

  • Looking for a grave in a genealogical framework, I could not find the grave, certainly hidden under leaves or grass, how many graves. The staff are not friendly.

  • One of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Europe is the Kozma Street Cemetery, located next to Újköztemető (New Public Cemetery) in suburb Budapest. This is also the largest Hungarian Jewish cemetery, which opened in 1861, and has more than 300,000 graves. Near the entrance stands a holocaust monument that was built by the famous architect and Olympic swimming champion Alfréd Hajós.
  • Nice, peaceful, historical cemetery. Should be much better maintained.
