Discover the Jewish heritage of Budapest with a passionate guide.
Explore one of the most popular areas of inner Pest. The 7th district is where Jewish culture has bloomed for over 200 years and today hosts the largest and most active Jewish community of Eastern Europe. As a highlight of the tour, visit the neighborhood of the Dohány Street Synagogue, which is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world.
During the walk you'll get to know the home of the largest Jewish community of Eastern Europe today where you'll see from the outside the three most important Synagogues. We overview 2000 years of Jewish history while focusing on the last 150 years including the ""golden age"" of the turn of the century, the interwar period with a special focus on the events of the WW II and the revival of Jewish life from the 1990s.
Besides Jewish culture and history we introduce you to the gentrifying inner 7th district and its living standards, conditions, issues and its street art.
We visit a ruin bar and invite your for a drink during the tour.
