29/38.- Budapest, Synagogue


This Romantic style temple is Europe’s biggest synagogue, with capacity for more than 3,000 spectators. Next to this synagogue there’s the Jewish Museum (with a Holocaust memorial room) and the Hall of Heroes (with the Monument of Hungarian Jewish Martyrs). The two towers you can see are 43 meters high. Inside the Synagogue very special concerts are held. Something you probably don’t know is that Theodor Herzl was born not far from here, he was the founder of modern Zionism.

The Synagogue is next to the Astoria subway station. We’ll now walk to Keleti pu subway station, take the subway and visit one of the symbols of Budapest: the Heroes’ Square ...
