Today the former Jewish quarter has come to life again and has become one of the most vibrating and frequented places in the downtown. Enchanting passages, modern-restored-rundown buildings are side-by-side. Ruin-pubs, cafés and designer shops pop up month after month, there is always something new to discover here! Although the surface has changed, you can still trace scenes of the Jewish life old and new.
Besides the Europe’s largest functioning synagogue, our favourites are the more tucked away smaller ones. Kazinczy street is not only about parties but is home to the orthodox community with its stunning Art Nouveau synagogue and the surprising Rumbach synagogue which is gorgeous even in its “still-waiting-for-better-days” state. With us you can also find a wall built in a courtyard representing the former ghetto wall with the motto “tell your son”….
And finally, Flodni. It is a Hungarian-Jewish pastry with all the essential ingredients of the Carpathian basin – apple, walnut, poppyseed and prune. Rich indeed! This richness is what we want to convey to you during this Fabulous Budapest tour.
