Besides being very fascinating, the Budapest Jewish Quarter hides some real treasures. The small shops and cafes that you will see around this area are characterized by real relics from the Jewish culture. More over, you will be charmed by the aristocratic buildings scattered along this area of Pest. The Great Synagogue located in Dohány Street represents the beating heart of this quarter.

Besides the Jewish Museum, the Heroes Temple, the Jewish cemetery, and the memorial park – which all belong to the Synagogue – the Jewish Quarter is characterized by a Memorial to honor Carl Lutz, a diplomatic who saved hundreds of Jewish during World War II. It is worth a mention also the Rumbach Utca Street Synagogue, built in Islamic style in 1872; however, today it is no longer a functioning synagogue.

Kiraly utca is a popular shopping street, setting the northern border of the Jewish District. Around the area there are some great restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops. On Vasvari Pal Street, hidden in a courtyard surrounded by residential buildings there is a synagogue built in Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance Style. The structure, which was renovated in 1990, it is now used as a school for Judaic studies.

The  Klauzal Square Covered Market is one of the main Budapest’s covered markets.
