First, your guide shows you the most important chapters of the Hungarian Jewry’s history and the Elizabethtown. Meanwhile we walk on the streets of the so-called Pest Jewish Quarter, we are going to explore the „status quo ante” Rumbach Street Synagogue (outside visit).

As the highlight of the tour, we visit the Dohány Street Synagogue (interior visit), which is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world.

You also get a local guided tour in the Jewish Museum, where you get acquainted with the Hungarian Jewish heritage trough a unique collection of art pieces from Hungary and Eastern Europe, and the rich tradition of Judaism, its holidays and everyday life. A separate room commemorates the Hungarian Holocaust.

Beside these we visit the Martyrs’ Cemetery,  the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park with the Tree of Life and the Heroes’ Temple (outside visit).  After the tour it is possible to visit the Jewish Quarter Exhibition in the Goldmark Hall and the Family Research Center.
