The Original FREE Jewish Quarter Walking Tour

Come explore Budapest on our  Free Original Jewish Quarter Walking Tour! The Jewish people and culture have played an important role in shaping what is Pest, Buda, and Óbuda (Old Buda). The once thriving Jewish community here was truly one of a kind. After years of persecution and fighting during World War II, many European Jewish communities were destroyed. Despite this devastation, many monuments and remnants of the old Jewish community can still be found here.
