We had an hour long Hungarian lesson and planned a two hour walk with Balacz, but it was bitterly cold and we spent a two hour "walk" through the fascinating history of Hungary. It was an excellent introduction to Budapest and Hungary. I would recommend any first time visitor to do this on arrival- this program adds so much value... More

Miklós made me feel at ease and I loved the 2 hour 'course'. Although I had a bit of knowledge beforehand, still enjoyed this a lot! Thank you so much Miklós for the wonderful time!

No visit to Budapest or indeed Hungary would be complete without a tour with Fungarian - it's a fascinating experience to learn more than you ever knew about this amazing and beautiful city. What's more is that you get an authentic experience to discover the real city rather than just a "touristy" tour ! I highly recommend it!

What a great way to have an introduction to a city, a culture, and a language that seems impossible. My instructor/guide Balazs was clever, kind and accommodating, and through a language lesson + walking tour I gained a better understanding of Hungarian culture. He was also encouraging and had a good humor...overall fantastic experience.

Guidebooks, language tapes, and phrasebooks do not bring the Hungarian language to life like Fungarian. I met my instructor at Cafe Zenit and learned some basics of the language in two hours. Well worth the price.

Everything about our experience with the people at Fungarian was excellent. Several emails were exchanged during the planning of our tour. They were so personable, yet professional, that by the time we met them, I felt as if I was getting together with old friends. They were flexible and they tailored the afternoon to suit our interests. We expressed interest... More

This is my second experience with Fungarian. Last year I took the hour Fungarian language class. I already had a smattering of Hungarian as a result of family connection, however I still picked up useful tips about pronunciation, greetings and customary usages. This year we took two walking tours: Life under Communism with Balazs, and Art Nouveau architecture with Miklos.... More

Miklos is a wonderful tour person, my grandson and I went on a 2-3 hour walking tour that took us back in time. Anyone interested in learning of life behind the iron curtain and the coming out from behind it must take this tour, I highly recommend it.

Though I would not describe myself as a Communist, I have always found this period of Eastern Europe to be extremely fascinating, and having done similar tours in Prague, Kyiv and Warsaw etc I wanted to find a similar one for my trip to Budapest. I have visited Budapest 3 times, and though knew bits about the history, I never... More

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.
