Street art is a widespread feature in many cities around the world. The Hungarians seem to be the best at it, with street art decorating the walls of almost every street, especially in the downtown Jewish District area of Budapest. 

Most of the district’s buildings were abandoned and left in ruins after WWII, but now the Jewish District is one of the best places to explore with its run-down structures. Its streets have become vibrant, and it is an absolutely beautiful place to stay.  

This became a reality due to a movement to revitalize the old walls and run-down buildings with contemporary graffiti wall art. A large number of Budapest’s most impressive mural paintings can be found within walking distance in the Jewish District.
