Amazing buildings with a drammatic history!


Budapest Jewish Tour shows you Great Synagogues of the third biggest Jewish community of Europe. Visiting the Dohány Temple, the Orthodox Synagogue and walk in the Budapest Jewish Quarter.

What does it mean to be Jewish in Hungary today? Learn about everyday life in Jewish Hungary, the terrible story of the Hungarian Holocaust, survival and revival, past and present of Jewish people in Hungary.

Itinerary

Visit the "Jewish triangle" in Budapest: the 19th century Jewish quarter with 3 Synagogues. The Great Budapest "Dohány Street" Synagogue is the third biggest Synagogue in the world! Inside visit includes the Synagogue building, the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Garden and Jewish Cemetery, the Museum on Jewish artifacts and on the tragedy of the Holocaust, the moving monument of the Tree of Life, foundation of Tony Curtis. Stories of Jewish Festivals, traditions and celebrations of everyday life are illustrated by amazing artefacts in the Jewish Museum.
After a small rest in the best kosher pastry shop, our walk in the Budapest Jewish quarter takes us to two other synagogues, art dealers, and the longest courtyard lane in Hungary. Passing a new feature of the Budapest Jewish Quarter: the Ruin Bars! The Orthodox Synagogue offers just as much beauty as the big one, but is very little known, even by locals.
I intend this tour to be a real dialog: what does it mean to be Jewish in Hungary today?

A Recent Review of this tour

Karina is a remarkable guide. She has a heart of gold and is so very knowledgeable about the Jewish history and the global history of Hungary from the pre WWI to the present. Her personal history adds a wisdom and soulfulness that is a blessing and gift. To know first hand what her family survived and how she has become the strong and compassionate and insightful and brave and noble present generation of Hungary is both humbling and inspiring. Choose Katrina to know Budapest.
