Dohány Street Synagogue

Around Budapest - Sights

Budapest has always been a hub of Jewish culture, so it comes as no surprise that the second largest synagogue of the world is found here. The Dohány Street Synagogue (Dohány utcai Zsinagóga) was built in 1859 in Moorish Revival Style. It seats 3000. This complex is not only a place of worship, but also hosts the Hungarian Jewish Museum. It lies in Dohány street, right off the Small Boulevard, as an entrance to the Jewish district. Dohány street carries serious Holocaust connotations, it was the border of the Budapest Ghetto during WWII and even today still remains the center of the Jewish community in Hungary. A three-year reconstruction, funded largely by the world famous Estée Lauder, who had Hungarian and Jewish ancestors, was completed in 1996.
