Let’s walk around in the 7th District Jewish Quarter of Budapest and explore the rich history of the Hungarian Jewish Community. We also show you the changes that took place in the district since the 1990s and how it has become the bohemian quarter of the city regaining slowly its old character as well. On this tour, we visit the three historical synagogues: the Dohàny street, the Kazinczy Street Orthodox Synagogue and even the recently renovated Rumbach Street Synagogue. The tour will take you to other sites as well related to the turbulent history of the Jewish community living in this part of Budapest. We even take you down to the Shoes on the Danube Memorial near the Parliament building. Also, to introduce you to other parts of the Jewish heritage we won't miss tasting our special and traditional Hungarian Jewish pastry.

P.S: Please note that if you would like to book a tour on Fridays or Saturdays, we cannot enter the Synagugoes due to their religious function.
