Bellu Cemetery has been called an open air museum and the area is quite photogenic. It is full of mausoleums, underground tombs, monuments and statues. A large number of the underground tombs have been broke into and robbed. It was interesting to hear the stories of some of the monuments.

Bellu is easily accessible via the M2 Metro line. The Eroli Revolutiei station is just a couplre of stops from the centre. Bellu cemetery is unexceptional but was worth a look simply because our primary purpose was to visit the adjoining cemetery of the 'Heroic Martyrs of the 1989 Revolution'. This cemetery is heart breaking and contains the graves of... More

Many artists and important politicians are buried here. Great funeral monuments and beautiful sculptures with quite a lot of stories. Part of it is like a museum.

Free entry. Open 7 days. I always head for a major cemetery when I arrive in a new city, as it is here that you will get a good understanding of the history of a people and - as I am an artist - you will most likely discover plenty of good artworks in the form of sculptures and interesting...

I visited Bellu Cemetery on the "Museum Night" when you can enter any museum for free all night long. The place was full of lights and they had a theatre scene in the park. They performed "Adam and Eva". It was a nice experience to spend the night in a cemetery.

Romanian cemeteries tell you so much more than who died and when. Pictures of family, occupations, even little stories. It is a window to the past of a fascinating people. Well maintained and peaceful. The revolutionary cemetery next door with the martyrs of 1989 is also worth a visit. You can read the stories of the regular people who made... More

I was brought to the cemetery by relatives...and it probably helped me to have their commentary. But this is a very interesting place...and lots of important Romanians have very impressive crypts.

This is the most famous cemetery in Bucharest. Lots of actors and scientist are burried here. There are lots of statues and crypts (many are some big authors work of art). It s an interesting place to visit during day (night is forbbiden with some exceptions)

A lovely graveyard with some nice statues. i found the right sight of the graveyard, where older and smaller plots are more beautiful. On the left site are artists, of which I expected a lot, but was less interesting

The place is a very old cemetery, which used to be located on the outskirts of the city and now lies barely outside of the center. It is famous for it's age and history, the numerous families of arristocrats who built large berial grounds within, and a "artist's alley" where most of Romania's writers, actors, public figuers rest in ethernity.
