Take a private tour of the Soho of Budapest and admire the centuries-old buildings of the Jewish District. Learn about new places that continue to open here in this ever-changing area that still has ancient traditions kept by the orthodox community.
What to Expect
Budapest’s Jewish District is the heart of Pest. It is a place where people from all around Europe have found home and made it a unique mixture of local and international, progressive and traditional, western and oriental.
In the 19th century the area blossomed, in the 20th century it saw horrible events and became the ghetto during the Holocaust, and now in the 21st century it has overcome the dark past and become one of the most interesting parts of Pest to visit!
During this 3.5-hour guided walk you’ll learn about the history, the culture, and the persons involved in the Jewish communities of Budapest.
Learn about the lives and traditions, the cuisine, and the music. Visit the largest synagogue in Europe and see other synagogues and buildings of religious significance on this tour that’s priced for up to 2 persons.
You’ll discover the hidden beauty of old buildings in an area that's protected by its UNESCO listing. Get insider tips and recommendations about where to shop, where to eat, and where to go in the evening.
