Data and description

    The Farkasréti cemetery was opened in 1894, and its entrance complex – including the funeral chapel – was built in 1938, based on the designs of Ferenc Módos and Virgil Krassói. Only some of the buildings, which were heavily damaged during the war, were later restored, including the funerary chapel. One of Imre Makovecz’s best-known works is the 1977 remodeling of it, about which the architect himself wrote: “I wanted to make the interior of the chapel resemble the inside of a person’s chest (…) The deceased lies where the heart is.”
