Description

Explore the history of the Jewish settlements in Budapest on a half-day tour of the Jewish Quarter, and learn about a history that dates back to the 13th century and covers the Mongolian invasion. Tours are conducted by air-conditioned minivan for up to 6 passengers, and can be tailor-made on request. You will visit Europe's largest synagogue, the Great Synagogue on Dohány Street. Located within the Jewish Quarter, the complex is also home to the Jewish Museum, Heroes' Temple, Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park, and Jewish Cemetery. Admire the Byzantine-Moorish architecture and onion-shaped domes of the synagogue’s twin towers. Next, head to the historical confines of Pest to see the Moorish Revival style Rumbach Street Synagogue, built in the style of the octagonal Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Continue to the orthodox Kazincy Street Synagogue to experience a more intimate place of worship. Your journey through Jewish heritage ends at the Shoes on the Danube Promenade memorial on the banks of the River Danube, where you can honor the Hungarian Jewish victims of World War 2.
