This very small section of a late 14th centuary synagogue is worth a visit. It provides some history of the Jews in the city in the early history of the city from the 13th century. The tombstones are magnificent and part of three columns have...More

There just wasn't much to see. It's a small room with a couple of pictures and placards about the Jews of Hungary. There are some tombstones from the old cemetery and some inscriptions in the walls from the 1300s.

The 5 star review may seem like an exaggeration for an almost miniscule exhibit that seems to be unknown even to tour guides. But for the student of history, this 1 room synagogue with medieval frescoes (indicating Sephardi roots during the time of the Ottoman...More

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
