What To Expect

Meet your guide in Budapest’s Seventh District, a center of Jewish life that is currently undergoing a renaissance as one of its city’s hippest neighborhoods. Delve into this historical district as your guide explains its medieval roots and how it was home to a thriving Jewish community until WWII. Hear how, during the war, the area formed the Jewish ghetto, and how those who survived served as the foundations for the city’s present-day community and vibrant Jewish culture. Stroll the leafy streets past neoclassical houses and synagogues as your guide explains their role in today’s community. Make several different stops at eateries to savor some traditional Jewish specialities. Samples vary on each tour according to availability, but dishes you may try include turos taska, flodni and savory staples such as sausage and goose crackling.
