The Amazing Budapest Jewish Quarter
The Budapest Jewish Quarter was our favourite district in Budapest! You really do have to visit this gem, so read on and check out the video further below.
It may be one of the smallest districts in the city, but interestingly enough the Jewish Quarter is one of the most heavily populated. In saying that, we definitely didn’t notice an intensity or hustle during our various visits – so walking the streets and exploring didn’t feel like a complete battle.
The Jewish quarter that exists now still houses some of the historical remains of the Jewish community that once thrived there. Three synagogues and various memorial gardens and museum sites can be found easily by walking the streets and talking in the atmosphere of the area. These are the type of streets you can aimlessly explore on foot and you’ll be sure to stumble across something you love.
Atmosphere, charisma, charm – this particular district has gone through an incredible uprising to reach the status it currently has, well known for bringing people from all walks of life to the area to socialise.
