Located just a few minutes walk away from the Dohany Street Synagogue, this place is definitely worth a visit. There isn't much to do beyond just checking out the interior, but it's cheap to enter and very pretty on the inside, so it's worth the 15 minutes of your time that it will take.

I try to take in the history of every city i visit and over the many years of visiting this gorgeous and historic city it saddens me that I knew so little about the Jewish Quarter. We passed this stunning synagogue at night while enjoying the nightlife around this area and I took a few grainy photographs on my phone.... More

It is a very nice art deco building in a small street in the former Jewish quarter. Very nice ornamentic inside and outside as well. There is a "mikve" (Jewish ritual bath), which was renoveted in te recent years.

If you are a fan of architecture, this venue is an absolute must-not-miss destination in Budapest. An example of Secessionist (related to Art Nouveau) design, it is hard to believe that it was completed in 1913 -- despite this being an Orthodox temple, the inside is absolutely WILD! Of course, the story of Hungarian Judaism is a rather sad story,... More

This synagogue is an example of purpose and protection of the Jewish culture. Kazinczy Street Synagogue serves the orthodox community in Budapest and has a warmth that is missing in larger churches and synagogues. For me, if I had missed this synagogue, I would have missed an important cultural link in my study of Jewish history and culture. This is... More

Budapest has a lot of historical buildings. We visited this synagogue and were very impressed by the atmosphere. It's good to preserve history.

If your are interested in Art-Deco architecture and design, and Jewish culture and history then this place is a must-see in Budapest. Was not cheap to visit, but worth it. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgable and though we were with several of our younger children they did not mind their wandering about.

Yes, Dohany Street Synagogue has size going for it. But this beautiful, intimate synagogue is a true hidden gem. Small and sweet, restored to perfection, when we visited we were two of about five visitors. One of the two gentlemen taking entrance fees was happy to give a personal tour when he saw us take out our guide book. He... More

We were wandering around the Jewish Quarter when we stumbled upon this Synagogue. It only cost us 300 HUF to get access. The man who assisted us was very friendly and welcoming. There wasn't much to see inside but there was a little exhibition with the history behind the area, synagogues in Hungary and the building too.

Not as stunning as the Great Synagogue but definitely worth a visit. A much smaller, but very nicely restored Orthodox Synagogue.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
