Itinerary

Orthodox synagogue.

In a small side-street, you can find Budapest's Orthodox synagogue. The Orthodox Synagogue was built in 1913 in what was at the time a very modern design. 

It has late art nouveau touches and is decorated in bright colours throughout. The stained-glass windows in the ceiling were designed by Miksa Róth.

Synagogue in Rumbach Street.

The first synagogue we will see is in Rumbach Street, the building is closed from an interior visit, but it’s beautiful with an interesting history.

Memorial statue.

A memorial statue dedicated to Carl Lutz, a Swiss diplomat who rescued thousands of Jews from deportation.

Memorial park.

Raul Wallenberg Memorial Park with the Tree of Life which was created to remind us of those who perished in the war.

Information about the Jewish ghetto.

Towards the end of WWII, the Jews of Budapest were herded into a ghetto, and a small section of the ghetto’s wall still stands in the heart of Budapest. Our guide informs you about the secrets of the ghetto, the life of its inmates and their eventual fate.

Evening cruise.

The Evening cruise starts at the Vigadó Square Pest side, Dock Nr 7, Legenda Cruises at 09.00 pm. Admire the Evening sights of Budapest from a scenic cruise on the Danube River with a drink in your hand.
