Explore the Historic Jewish Quarter with a local guide


Visit the Historic Jewish Quarter, one of the oldest and most popular parts of Budapest!
This living quarter is uniquely characterized by the culture of the Jewish community (the largest Jewish community in East-Central Europe), that settled down here centuries ago.
The third largest synagogue in the world (the second largest one in Europe), the Jewish Museum and Archives with a rich collection and the most important Jewish religious and cultural institutions are located here.
The quarter has been on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage since 2002.
Let's discover the history, costumes, traditions and festivals together!

NOTICE: ON FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS WE ARE NOT ABLE TO VISIT THE SYNAGOGUES INSIDE BECAUSE OF THE "SABBATH"!
