The Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest synagogue in Europe is a must see among all the sights. If you would like to have a more personal experience and avoid joining a large group during your visit at the Synagogue, this private tour is highly recommended for you. I will tell you about the history of the synagogue and life of Jewish Community in Budapest. You will learn about the Hungarian holocaust, and those non-Jewish people who risked their lives to save Jews and got the title "Righteous Among the Nations" from the state of Israel.
The main stops are the following:
Interior visit in Dohány Synagogue
Jewish Museum with audioguide
Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park
Tree of Life, Emmanuel tree, Etz Hayim
Righteous Among the Nations Memorial
IMPORTANT: the Dohany synagogue and the Hungarian Jewish Museum are closed on Saturdays and Jewish religious and on Hungarian national holidays. If you share your visiting date with me, I will check availability for you.

Sleeveless tops, short skirts or shorts are not appropriate for entry, clothing items can be purchased. There is a security check before entry.
