Bethlen Theater
Bethlen Theatre ...where past meets present In the outer part of the 7th district of Budapest, at Bethlen Gabor square is where our tiny theater is located. In 2012, it was re-named as Bethlen Theatre – the same name it had before it was closed in 1937. The change of name went hand in hand with a change of profile: before the reopening, the place functioned as a dance theater for more than 15 years; since then it is a production theater. Its objective is to revive by the efficient help of contemporary art, young artists and performers without genre limitations. The programs here are organised on the basis of art community. The four pillars – prose and dance performances, children plays and comedy – have been extended with genres, such as visual theatre, impromptu theatre and folk performances. Festivals, contemporary dance and theater performances, Sunday plays for children, free screenings, and exhibitions at the Gallery await the audience every month.

Neighborhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
