This is not just a slogan for me. Since I come from local Jewish family and grew up during Communism, I can give you much more than pure facts learnt in history books.

This tour is for all those who would like to see besides the highlights, the hidden Jewish treasures, as well.

My tour goes through the Jewish sights of Budapest in chronological order.

Covers the Castle District Medieval Jewish Sights, the Old Buda Section functioning and flourishing Communities, the Pest Jewish Quarter. Visit Europe biggest Synagogue, the Jewish Museum, Memorial garden, Orthodox Synagogue etc.
Learn about the Holocaust, how the Jewish Quarter turn to the ghetto during WWII, how was the rescue and resistance movements outside of the Ghetto, visit the "Glass House" see the Shoes Memorial on the River Danube and many more.
