This building is by far one of the most beautiful synagogues I have seen. If the outside is anything to go by, I can only imagine what the interior would look like!
Visited the synagogue on a Tuesday afternoon. The welcome was more frosty than warm & it was one of the more expensive places to visit in Budapest.

The gardens outside the synagogue though are more historic and poignant in the suffering these people endured in World War 2 and the people who helped... More
