If your are interested in Art-Deco architecture and design, and Jewish culture and history then this place is a must-see in Budapest. Was not cheap to visit, but worth it. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgable and though we were with several of our younger children they did not mind their wandering about.

Yes, Dohany Street Synagogue has size going for it. But this beautiful, intimate synagogue is a true hidden gem. Small and sweet, restored to perfection, when we visited we were two of about five visitors. One of the two gentlemen taking entrance fees was happy to give a personal tour when he saw us take out our guide book. He... More

We were wandering around the Jewish Quarter when we stumbled upon this Synagogue. It only cost us 300 HUF to get access. The man who assisted us was very friendly and welcoming. There wasn't much to see inside but there was a little exhibition with the history behind the area, synagogues in Hungary and the building too.

Not as stunning as the Great Synagogue but definitely worth a visit. A much smaller, but very nicely restored Orthodox Synagogue.

This beautiful, orthodox synagogue was designed and built during the early 1900's. Walking in you see the influence of the art nouveau period with the amazing graphics on at background of white and robin's egg blue. The bright space is a stark contrast to the dark spaces of the city's cathedrals. Being my first orthodox synagogue, I was surprised to... More

A beautiful synagogue. It's tasteful, real, historic (Nazis used it as a stable having trashed it) and used today. The staff often show people around a bit to tell you how everything works. You can learn a nice bite size piece of info, which is what a visit should be about. It's much cheaper than the commercial tourist trap that... More

Lovely and bright place, far cheaper and more laid back than the main synagogue, and staff far less rude

The synagogue costs 1000 ft/person. The man taking money was really nice and offered to take a picture of my husband and me in the synagogue. My husband was given a yarmulke to wear. The bathroom is around the corner from the synagogue down a side street. It's free. The Kazinczy Synagogue was our first time in a synagogue. We... More

1000 Ft to get in. Bimah in the center. Synagogue was greatly destroyed during the war. There is a photo of the devastation in the back. The Nazis used the area behind the bimah as a stable. Renovation/reconstruction couldn't be started for over 50 years due to lack of funds and was only completed in 2006. Beautiful Aron Kodosh with... More

Loved it, the paint job is just wonderful. Its only open for a few hours but worth taking the time to go and enjoy the jubilant decor inside.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
