After a short break we continue our walk through the Jewish Quarter, on the streets of the former Ghetto, where synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and kosher shops can be found. While your guide tells you important facts and local stories from this area, you also get to know more about Budapest.

During our journey we visit the Memorial Park dedicated to Carl Lutz, then we pass by the famous Gozsdu Passage. The third station of the Synagogue Triangle is the Kazinczy Street Synagogue (interior visit), which is one of the largest operating orthodox synagogues in Europe, built in art-nouveau style. At the end of the tour, you have two options: you can accept our invitation to have a cake in the glatt kosher Fröhlich confectionery or you can receive 10% discount in the glatt kosher Carmel restaurant. This tour was created for those, who would like to get a overview of the past and present of Hungraian Jewry’s and would like to understand the differences between Hungary's main religious wings. With the help of English-speaking guides you will be acquainted with the most important chapters of the history and culture of the Hungarian Jewry.

At the end of the day let us invite you for a Hungarian Folklore Dance Show! Hungary is one of the very few countries where folk-dancing is performed very professionally. Our authentic folk-dance shows take place in the Duna Palota, and they are performed by The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and the Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra. These are three of the best professional Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition (since 1951, 1957 and 1952). The performed dances give the viewer a broad insight into Hungarian music, dance and costume heritage, covering traditions of former parts of Hungary as well. The performance starts at 8 PM, but please arrive in time, 30 minutes before.
