Couples seeking a romantic activity for some quality time together will love this evening cruise on the Danube River. After a busy day of sightseeing, sit back and relax as you cruise past some of Budapest's most beautiful attractions, lit up at night. Enjoy a 4-course dinner by candlelight, and be entertained with live Hungarian music.

Visiting this great synagogue for the God-knows-which-time, and it is still as impressive as the first visit, with its Moorish exterior and gorgeous classic interiors, it's an absolute must for every visitor of Budapest.

You can still walk around it as the construction and it’s facade are very beautiful. But unfortunately for the time being no visitors are allowed. Hopefully next time. Safety first.

Pros- 1 )beautiful interior; 2) excellent tour guide provided historical context for the building and excellent review of religious and cultural traditions; 3) tree of life (at the back of the synagogue) was a poignant reminder of the people who died during the war (each leaf had an engraved name ) Cons- quite expensive Tip- you have to go through security check Overall- definitely worth a visit

We arrived mid afternoon and paid our entry without being told the facility closed in less than one hour--not nearly enough time to tour it. We were directed to a tour and couldn't hear the guide because the group was too large. Then when we tried to enter the museum 10 minutes before closing time, we were turned away. We provided feedback to the management and were treated rudely. Even in followup communication, management did not apologize or show any interest in our situation. If you choose to visit, check the hours carefully and don't expect respectful treatment. NOT good value for the price and unfortunately, a memorable experience in a bad way!

Located on dohany streets stands this beautiful structure, (the largest synagogue in Europe), built in The mid 1800’s, in the Moorish revival style, it is very reminiscent of the Alhambra in Spain, (which is also beautiful). The structured suffered greatLy during the turbulent times of WWII, however, you now see a fully restored building.
