As the home of one of the largest Jewish communities in Europe, Budapest hosts many prominent Judaic sites for you to explore. Explore the resilient Great Synagogue, the gripping Jewish Museum, and the once-somber streets of the Budapest Ghetto area.

Your guide meets you at the dome-topped Dohány Street Synagogue, a 19th-century Moorish Revival synagogue which is the largest of its kind in Europe. Skip the long visitor queues to marvel at the majestic interior, and make your way to the neighboring Jewish Museum to learn more about the local community’s history.

Next to the synagogue, the Jewish Cemetery is the resting place of bankers, industrialists, and artists from the pre-war era. Continue to the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park which hosts the Tree of Life, a stainless steel-and-silver monument that forms a weeping willow.
