This is the largest synagogue in Europe and you may also hear it referred to as The Great Synagogue. It is a fascinating building with a rich history, and is a nice memorial to the Jewish people who were persecuted during World War Two. The interior is even more impressive than the outside so I definitely recommend going in. The Hungarian Jewish Museum is also in the same building and is worth visiting too, it's best to pay for a guided tour if you want to learn some interesting facts.
Lots of history in this building and area. They have a walking tour available that covers the Jewish area and the history of the Jewish Ghetto. A different tour covers inside the Synagogue. Well worth it to do both tours - about an hour each with very informative guides.
Beautiful synagogue! We had a very pleasant English speaking guide with notable involvement and gripping stories. We came out full of eyes and wet with emotion!
The second largest synagogue in the world is located in the Jewish quarter of Budapest. Built predominantly Moorish in style, its construction was completed in 1859 and today it is as impressive a building inside as it is outside, and because of its historical importance it is a breathtaking place. Next to it is a cemetery in which the more than 2000 Jews who lived in the ghetto and who were not sent to concentration camps are buried. The entrance is paid (2,850 florins), but it is certainly worth it.
