This morning your guide and driver will meet you at your port. Today you can explore the beauty of Central Pest. Prior to visiting the Jewish Quarter, your guide will take you to the Budapest Market Hall. Built in the 19th century, the covered market boasts soaring metal columns, high walkways and beautiful produce shops. More than being a place where one can purchase some handcrafted and typical Hungarian souvenirs, it’s a market where locals go to purchase their produce and meats – a meeting place for many and a place where you can enjoy authentic local flavor.
Next, your guide will take you to the Jewish Quarter. The highlight is a visit to the Great Synagogue (Dohany Street Synagogue), the largest in Europe (and second largest in the world) – impressive in its Byzantine and Moorish style architecture. Today it’s still in use for Budapest’s Jewish Community. You can visit the Jewish Museum that is part of the synagogue, and afterwards, walk over to the Holocaust Memorial. The sculpture of a weeping willow designed in memory of the 600,000 Hungarian Jews who died under the Nazis in World War II.
