Full description
Discover one of the most popular areas of inner Pest. The 7th district is where Jewish culture has bloomed for over 200 years and today hosts the largest and most active Jewish community of Eastern Europe. As a highlight of the tour, visit the neighborhood of the Dohány Street Synagogue, which is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world.  Walk through the Jewish Quarter, on the streets of the former Ghetto, which hosts synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and kosher shops. Hear local stories of this neighborhood and about Budapest. During your walk, visit the Carl Lutz Memorial, dedicated to one of the Righteous Among the Nations, who is also known as Hungary’s Schindler. Then pass by the lively Gozsdu Passage and visit Kazinczy Street Synagogue, which is one of the largest operating orthodox synagogues in Europe, built in art-nouveau style. Apart from the largest Synagogue of Europe, and the other two most important temples of the Synagogue Triangle, hear local tips about the ruin pubs and nightlife. Learn about the street art and other secrets of Elizabeth Town. Towards the end of the tour, get to know one of the coolest ruin bars in Elizabeth Town.

    Highly recommended tour. The very small group size ensures a personal touch and my guide Barika had personal stories to share. I learned a lot about Jewish culture and traditions as well as the history of Jews in Budapest, and what happened to them during World War II.

    Barinka , our guide, was absolutely excellent, explaining the history of the Jewish Quarter and using her own family's experiences to add flavour to our tour! She was above excellent!
