Kazinczy Street 27-29, Pest District VII, Budapest , Hungary, 1075

The basics

The synagogue was constructed in 1913 by the Löffler brothers, destroyed during World War II, and rebuilt in the years that followed. Now this temple welcomes visitors to explore its elegant interior, complete with stained glass, floral-motif tiling, and extravagant chandeliers.

You pay a small entry fee to visit the temple and can learn more on an included synagogue tour. If you prefer to have a guide lead the way, explore the Jewish Quarter with a District VII walking tour and enjoy an in-depth look at the area's cultural heritage. Tours often include stops at the Kazinczy Street Synagogue, Central Synagogue, and the Rumbach Street Synagogue; many tours include admission to these historic worship spaces.
