Tour description

The Jewish Quarter of Budapest is a really exciting part of the city. Nowadays, this is the center of nightlife, where the ruin bars are located, where you can find the best restaurants, bars, clubs. But did you know Budapest has the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, and here we have a Synagogue Triangle which means we have 3 large Synagogues within a walking distance from each other? Did you know that you can find the largest Synagogue of Europe (or the second-largest Synagogue of the world) in Budapest? During this tour, we show you the famous Dohány street Synagogue as well.

The Jewish Quarter was the place where Budapest had the ghetto during the World War II, and during this tour we show you the memorials, the Synagogues and you can learn a lot about the history of the Hungarian Jewish Community, you can get acquainted with the role of Hungary during the first and the second world war.

We had a wonderful tour with Aron! It was so interesting, we learned a lot and got to understand more about the city and its history. Very highly recommended! It was our first guided city walk and we will definitely do more of them with GuruWalk.
