Your private guide picks you up at given place and timeVisit the "Jewish triangle" in Budapest: the 19th century Jewish quarter with 3 Synagogues. The Great Budapest "Dohány Street" Synagogue is the third biggest Synagogue in the world! Inside visit includes the Synagogue building, the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Garden and Jewish Cemetery, the Museum on Jewish artifacts and on the tragedy of the Holocaust, the moving monument of the Tree of Life, foundation of Tony Curtis. Stories of Jewish Festivals, traditions and celebrations of everyday life are illustrated by amazing artefacts in the Jewish Museum.
After a small rest in the best kosher pastry shop, our walk in the Budapest Jewish quarter takes us to two other synagogues, art dealers, and the longest courtyard lane in Hungary. Passing a new feature of the Budapest Jewish Quarter: the Ruin Bars! The Orthodox Synagogue offers just as much beauty as the big one, but is very little known, even by locals.
Talking about contradictions in Hungary, you will learn why and how young Hungarian jews are searching for their identity. Is there antisemitism in Hungary? We’ll take you to our living Jewish memorial, and you will see the protest of everyday people who don’t let any more pages be torn out of the Book of Hungarian History. If time allows, go down to the Shoes Holocaust Memorial, where many Budapest Jewish families were saved by Raoul Wallenberg…This tour can become a real dialog: what does it mean to be Jewish in Hungary today?
