The Jewish quarter of Budapest is small in size but large on charm. The neoclassical buildings of the venerable neighborhood are home to artisan workshops, farmers markets, food trucks and ruin bars alongside kosher butcher shops, patisseries, and delicious Jewish-Hungarian restaurants. Jews have been living in Hungary since the time of the Roman Empire, and many settled in the capital of Budapest, where they made up nearly 23% of the population. When the Nazi’s occupied Hungary in 1944 they set up a ghetto in this area, where 70,000 Jews were crammed together under brutal conditions. Half the Jewish population of the city was killed, but those who survived worked hard to rebuild their lives. The narrow streets are home to lovely art & craft shops, trendy bars, and cafés and restaurants offering a great variety of cuisines. This “effortlessly cool” neighborhood with its vibrant colors, street performances, and hip bands playing in the cellars, is where culture and audience meet, and it is a favorite haunt of the city’s young population. Come explore this incredibly unique neighborhood!
