The heroes cemetery is home to some 281 white marble graves of demonstrators killed during the 1989 revolution in Bucharest. Most died in their teens, killed by people who still haven't been brought to justice. The identical graves, sometimes adorned with the Romanian flag, are guarded by an honour guard. The new, three-domed Church of the Martyr Heroes (Biserica Eroilor Martiri, tel. 021 647 29 28, 021 644 54 68), dominates the left side of the cemetery. To visit, surface at the Eroi Revoluţiei metro station.
Open, Fri 06:00-21:00.
