  • Detsværre is a great deal of closed due to refurbishment (2017), but the fixed part of the exhibition and the synagogue could be seen and it is free. Although we know the story from home, is Hungary's a little different than ours. Already in 1938, the Government begins to make a systematic breakdown of the people, and with the Nazis took, was it only be and eventually deport and eliminate approximately 600,000 Jews, Roma and others the Nazis not found was so wonderful as themselves, in just a few weeks. So cast you DF or new civil, should you take here, and learn what you have not yet understood. The rest of us, honor Nazi victims and let your journey to Hungary contain more than just how much you can get money.

  • Very cheap to enter! Roam free around the grounds has a lot of information and the inside of the building is so incredibly detailed its so incredibly beautiful! we were so blessed to have visited  more »
  • Not necessarily a must see in budapest if you're short but very impressive. If you have the chance just go check it out. Was coincidentally very close to our hotel. Unfortunately, not all t open but the synagogue we have viewed and which we found very nice. In addition, there are pictures and objects on display in the synagogue.
