Before I went to visit this synagogue, I checked on Google, when it is open.? Today, on the 31st of May, on a Friday, on the Internet the info was that is currently open, and will til 13.00 o'clock. To find it wasn't an easy task since the synagogue is hiding in the courtyard of an apartment house, behind a locked gate. If my Google map didn't tell me that I arrived at the address, I simply would continue the walk and miss it. As I mentioned, the gate was locked and wasn't any possibility to get in. Through the railing, I could see a little from my desired building, but I was hoping for more. Now, when I checked the reviews, the last one was from 2014. Obviously, it was either the lack of interest or the locked stopped other supposed to be visitors as well. Maybe by 2014, it could have been approached, or the visitors were Jewish and could go in to attend a service. After some research, I found a possibility. On the 30th of June will be a guided tour for HUF 2700.- and 2400.- for students and pensioners. Now I have to consider if am I curious enough to go again to see this neolog synagogue, or just forget about it and see something that doesn't require that significant effort. I rated it one but should 0, since how I can rate something, that I wasn't able to see?

This wonderful synagogue on the Buda side of Budapest was built about the 1890's and has been revived by a wonderful young Rabbi who has brought the synagogue back from near extinction to three hundred families today. It is a beautiful red brick structure and its ark contains a number of old Torahs saved during the Holocaust.

Very nice little synagogue. Inside is beautiful with wooden chairs, golden lights and very familiar atmosphere. It's living history. Open for tourists.

Is an old concept to have the Synagogue in the Middle of a Courtyard of Buildings, is not seen in many places in the world.
