Meet one of our guides with university background of history who can bring the history of Jewry of Hungary alive in front of you. During the walk you'll get to know the home of the largest Jewish community of Eastern Europe today where you'll see from the outside the three most important Synagogues. We overview 2000 years of Jewish history while focusing on the last 150 years including the "golden age" of the turn of the century, the interwar period with a special focus on the events of the WW II and the revival of Jewish life from the 1990s. Besides Jewish culture and history we introduce you to the gentrifying inner 7th district and its living standards, conditions, issues and its street art. One of the highlights of this tour is visiting the Rumbach street Synagogue inside (the entrance fee is included in the tour's price).
