Really great guided tour of the Jewish neighborhood and formal ghetto of Budapest. The tours can be done in groups, but we prefer doing them as private tours. The tour guides are all local historians, often PhDs who are knowledgeable in the field. Our guide,...More

Most of the time while we were in Budapest, we heard and saw the usual tourist things. There were castles and churches, all of which were beautiful. There was a lot of talk about Hungary's role in WW2, seemingly dancing around certain topics. But it...More

Hi Mary, thanks so much for your kind comments. It sounds like your time with our docents helped you really dig into the story of Budapest and, more broadly, of Hungary. Hope to have you with us in more of our Context cities soon!

What a fabulous tour of the Jewish section of Budapest. Our tour guide Esther Susan was so interesting and brought to life the history of the Jews. Her knowledge was so deep and yet she shared with color.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
