Discover the famous bohemian Jewish Quarter of the Hungarian capital!


Explore the cultural center of Budapest with me!
If you're interested in history, street food, going out or street art in Budapest, you can find it all in one place, in the Jewish Quarter.

During our tour we discover the depths and riches of Jewish heritage in the city. Dwelving in to Jewish history, I'll show you the hidden Jewish treasures of the neighborhood with 3 synagogues.

Get acquainted with the hip side of the district to see how this area became both the amusement and the cultural center of the city in the past 15 years. We'll take a look at the murals, that make the Jewish Quarter a true open air gallery; the kosher restaurants, and last but not least I'll invite you in to the most authentic local ruin pubs and cultural centers which are the top meeting points for locals and party people.

Please keep in mind, the synagogues we visit on the tour are functioning religious places. On Friday afternoon, whole Saturday and on Jewish high holidays they are closed.

Itinerary

First we will meet at your hotel or cruise dock.

The first synagogue we will see is in Rumbach Street, the building is closed from interior visit, but it's beautiful with interesting history.

The second synagogue is not other, but the largest European one in Dohány Street. We will visit the whole complex, included the Hungarian Jewish Museum and the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial garden with the Tree of Life Monument.

After we leave the complex, we will be heading to explore the bohemian side of the Jewish Quarter with the interior visit of a famous, so-called ruin bar, the Szimpla Garden.

The last synagogue of our triangle is the Kazinczy Street Orthodox Synagogue, a very special art nouvo treasure, we will go inside the building too.

The last part what we will see is the posh Gozsdu Court with wonderful restaurants and party places.

The closure is to visit one of Budapest's most important memorials, the 'Shoes on the Danube' commemorating to the victims of the Shoah.
