The still densely populated Jewish quarter – also called the „Jewish Triangle”- is one of the main attractions of Pest's downtown area and recently became a UNESCO-part of our town. The Dohány street Synagogue – the second largest in the world and the largest of Europe - and the valuable art collection of the Jewish Museum witness the emancipation efforts of the ambitious Jewish community and the overall building boom in the 19th century. The „Tree of Life” in the garden behind commemorates the numerous Hungarian holocaust-victims. We walk through the old ghetto area and see other synogogues, passages, tiny cafés, shops and streetart, we experience the unique atmosphere of this multicultural and bustling quarter of so much history, architecture and charme –learn what Hungarian-Jewish cuisine really means. Besides this district turns into the coolest place at night – full of cafés, artbars and „ruin pubs” so a once closed world is opening up! But there is not only one Jewish quarter in Budapest – you find the remembrance of our Jewish heritage almost everywhere – the shoes on the riverbank, the „glasshouse”, buildings of the international ghetto, monuments of saviours, beautiful artworks and so much more….
