Hungary / Budapest

“The way you greet someone determines how he will welcome you” (Hungarian proverb)​



Hilighted City: Budapest

Woven into the fabric of this historic city is the spirit of the Jewish people. The communities of Hungary can be traced back over 1,000 years. Hungary has the largest Jewish population in Eastern Europe. A vibrant community remains active in Budapest with kosher Restaurants, Hotels and Matzah factories. The Ghetto Wall (Judengasse: Jewish Alley), the shoes on Danube bank and the Glass House all support an informative journey of Jewish history that remains in this city. Among sites not to miss is a visit to 
the building used by Carl Lutz, the Swiss diplomat who assisted over 62,000 Jews in their struggle for survival. Budapest today is a center for education, culture and welcomes the world to explore its well-preserved buildings, monuments and museums.
