Bellu Cemetery - The oldest and most famous necropolis in Bucharest

„Many beloved Romanian figures—like writers, scientists and politicians—are buried here. ”

When you want to discover a new city, it’s not such a bad idea to visit its dead. Bellu Cemetery is the oldest and most famous necropolis in Bucharest. Many beloved Romanian figures—like writers, scientists and politicians—are buried here. It’s like walking through an open-air museum. Its 22 hectares of tombs, funeral monuments and other statuary let you dive deep into the lost glory of the city, and the multiculturalism that existed before the world wars. It's a fabulous piece of history, a cultural panorama of modern Romania and a memento mori, all in one place. Do you dig that? (pun intended)
