Jewish Budapest ToursDuration: 2 - 2,5 hours
Jewish Cultural Heritage in Budapest

Budapest has the biggest Jewish community in central eastern Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical heritage. Through centuries the Hungarian and Jewish history has been so entwined that it is almost inseparable. Jews played and play an important role in the country's economic, cultural and political life.

Those who are short of time can take our 2 - 2.5 hour Jewish Heritage Essential Tour. With the help of our English speaking guides you will be acquainted with the most important chapters of the history and culture of the Hungarian Jewry.

The tour includes an interior visit to the Dohány Street Synagogue, which is the largest in Europe and local guided tour in the Jewish Museum, which has an important and unique collection of art pieces from Hungary and Eastern Europe. After the synagogue we visit the Martyrs' Cemetery where thousands were buried, who were killed in the Ghetto. We continue our tour in The Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park with the Tree of Life which was created to remind us of those, who perished in the Holocaust. We will pass by the Heroes' temple, built in memory of the Jewish soldiers who gave their lives for Austria-Hungary during the WWI. After the tour it is possible to visit the Jewish Centre with exhibitions about Jewish history.
