If you're wondering where you can learn about the Jewish diaspora's history, culture, and traditions in Central Europe, Budapest is the best place to look. Thousands of years of Jewish history, with all of its tragic, poetic and comic aspects, are centred in Budapest. We will take a walk through Erzsébetváros, the Jewish district, the most striking and unexpected part of the city, and discover how people live here today. We will talk about the origins of Zionism and the Holocaust, the branches of Judaism and what it is like to be an Orthodox Jew in the modern world. The tour will be led by an Israeli native and a representative of the Jewish diaspora, so this tour will also be fascinating to those already well-versed in the subject.

This place is also full of secrets and mysteries, which we will have to find and uncover. We'll peek into the courtyards and courtyard wells and search for Firebirds from Slavic folklore and menorahs covered in whimsical patterns. Come and join us!
