Magnificent, Carlos Paniagua has been guiding and informing us. He has clearly transmitted to us the experience of the Jews in the Budapest ghetto. We liked it very much.

Jewish Quarter Tour

At 11 am we'll meet in the Great Synagogue of Budapest, the second largest in the world, and begin a tour around the Hungarian capital's Jewish quarter.

One of the important stops on the tour will be the exterior of the 19th century Great Synagogue, we'll admire the intricate details which reflect the mix of Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic styles. During the Second World War, the surroundings of this temple were turned into a concentration camp. The next stop will be at the Raoul Wallenger Holocaust Memorial Park, a monument built to honour all the victims of the Holocaust. 

Next, we'll go to the Carl Lutz Memorial. Did you know that Carl Lutz helped hundreds of Jews in Budapest to escape? it was the largest rescue operation of Jews during the Second World War. The sculpture was created to always remember the important Swiss diplomat.

The tour will also take us to the mural dedicated to the Spaniard Angel Sanz Briz. This painting was created by the artist Okuda in memory of the Spanish diplomat who saved the lives of 5,000 people by giving them a Spanish passport.

Later, we'll go to the Status Quo Synagogue and learn more about its history. This Mozarabic and Islamic place of worship was designed by the architect Otto Wagner. Then, we'll go to a building in Király Street to see the last remains of the Budapest ghetto in its courtyard.

To conclude the tour, we'll stop in front of the famous Budapest Opera House and discover its importance through the years while we appreciate its impressive facade.

At 1:15 pm, the Jewish Quarter tour will end at the Opera's entrance.
