Neighbourhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

This is an amazing synagogue.
It's designed in the art nouveau style and is like no other.
A veritable feast for the eyes.
Not to be missed when you are in Budapest.

Although the building is very cute and is definitly worth a visit, the synagogue is run by people seeming annoyed by tourists, closing doors during opening hours without any further information and if you ask them where to go to see the inside, they wouldn't know (!) and send you to the restaurant opposite... weird organisation for the fees charged!

Although small, this synagogue is stunning and worth a visit. The style is beautiful yet a contrast to the other synagogues in Budapest. We got to explore it on our own, while we wish there were more visitors, it allowed us to go slowly and really take in the grandeur. There were helpful information panels throughout the synagogue. Well worth a visit.

This is a beautiful synagogue in the Jewish quarter in Budapest.
While not as grand nor impressive as the nearby great synagogue, it's still worth a visit.

A must see. The second largest synagogue in the world. Beautiful place with amazing architecture. You must pay to enter though.

Really loved this synagogue. It is a traditional orthodox synagogue (that still operates!) with Art Nouveau inspired interiors. Far less glamorous than the Dohany synagogue, and no one will give you a tour here, but personally I felt far more connection to the place. Please leave a tzddakah (donation) in one of the boxes on the wall inside the synagogue, as the synagogue clearly needs some money for upkeep. Would love to visit it again some day and attend Shabbat service if I'm ever in Budapest in the future.

Having been to the Central Synagogue, it was nice to go to a smaller one and for different types of Jews. A great visit.

The synagogue was built in the secession style and was in a bad state of disrepair during the communist period. It has now been beautifully restored and is well worth a visit. It is not as large as the main synagogue (nor as busy) but the unusual combination of secession style and Orthodox Judaism makes it unique. Don't miss it if you are in the Jewish quarter.
