Description

This Budapest Jewish Quarter Free Walking Tour is one of the most contrasting tours that you can take during your stay in the city. The suffering of its warlike past and the glamorous and luxurious avenues compose its mixed cultural tradition.

You will be taken on a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. You will learn you everything about the life of the Hungarian Jews and its history during the times of the two oppressor regimes, the fascist and the communist ones. We will take a stroll through the most important synagogues in the city, prominent among them the Status Quo Ante Synagogue, which was destroyed during the Second World War and currently it is a centre for contemporary art.

We will also see the Great Synagogue, where we will come across the Tree of Life (The Holocaust Memorial), located in the Holocaust Memorial Center. This sculpture is a kind of metal weeping willow where the family names of all the holocaust victims are inscribed on its leaves. Our english speaking guide will impress us with his knowledge!

Also, we will then contemplate the old cabarets and theatres in Pest, very popular places at the beginning of the XX century. We will then have a walk along the history roots with our Budapest Jewish Quarter Free Walking Tour.
