Tour description

The Jewish District is undoubtedly one of the most interesting areas of Budapest. Once a multicultural trading spot where all classes and nations lived together - now an international tourism sensation.It did not only capture the atmosphere of the 19th and early 20th century but after the turn of the millenia, it became the forerunner of revitalization of Budapest once again. BP is not a mummy, the quarter shows you its very vivid side too – it inevitably became a social hub once again. A trendy hot spot for hip and bohemian young artists, lively locals and adventurous travelers.
