I am a Budapest-loving local and I want to share with you my enthusiasm for Budapest. Its special atmosphere that is a combination of history, the colorful culture, the people, and their love of our land. I studied art and history and have worked as a professional guide for years. Spending time with my grandmother, listening to her stories, learning to cook the the traditional recipes was a great inspiration for me. I'd love to show you my beloved city.

About the Tour

Come with me on an extraordinary tour with a local around the unique Jewish quarter of Budapest. As one of my favorite districts, the houses all have their history. How can the most hyped party district happen to be among historic buildings? What is the synagogue triangle?
You will see the Central Synagogue, the biggest in Europe,

  • The local multi-cultural neighborhood, with Szimpla Kert, the famous ruin bar.
  • The Memorial Garden of Wallenberg.
  • The most important community places of the Jewish district.

I can share with you my personal stories, the history of the area, and the best tips to get good Jewish and Hungarian food and drink! I can tell you all about the recent situation of the community as well as the 'Flódni' tasting cafés. 

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be waiting at the entrance of the white Lutheran Church on the square with a blue umbrella.
