Bellu is a moderately interesting cemetery but not worth a trip unless you are a cemetery buff. It's a flat piece of land that's covered with graves a few of which are beautiful or interesting.

It's a pretty interesting location to visit if you are in Bucharest. Unfortunately the maps are not accurate so it's pretty difficult to find the graves you are interested in seeing. Maybe some small printed maps at the entrance would be useful. We were lucky...More
