There is so very much to see here. It's really more than just one small area. Expanding the boundaries out to the edges, it's really quite large but very walkable. Lots to see and do and an abundance of history to soak in. Highly Recommended

Yesterday we spent some 2 1/2 hours at the iconic Dohany Street Synagogue which is essentially the entry point to The Jewish Quarter. Time constraints meant we could not really explore The Jewish Quarter extensively but saw enough to appreciate its place in Budapest’s History....More

The Jewish Quarter is a warren of narrow streets in the Pest city-center bordered by Andrassy ut,Erzebet korut, Rakoczi ur and Muizeum korut streets. The area was badly damaged in WWII and remained rundown and ramshackled until the fall of communism in the 1990's when...More
