Dohany Street Synagogue

by loum140

I very much want to visit the Great Synaagogue in Budapest, but will only be there one day -- a Saturday. I know it is closed for tours on Saturdays, but is it open for visitors to come and pray?

Re: Dohany Street Synagogue

by leics

The Great Synagogue the main meeting point for the Jewish commnity in Budapest. As Saturday is part of the Jewish Shabbat the synagogue is closed to the general public and will be used for prayers and, quite possibly, study.

If you are not Jewish it would not be appropriate for you to visit a synagogue at the time of prayers and/or study. It is very unlikely that the synagogue is open for visitors at other times during Shabbat (it officially closes at 2pm on Friday and opens at 10am on Sunday).

If you are Jewish, of course, you may well be able join prayers. According to:

http://www.sacred-destinations.com/hungary/budapest-dohany-street-synagogue.htm

there is a service at 9am on Saturday.

Travel Tips for Budapest

Budapest Districts - District VII

by johngayton

It was great having my own personal guide for a very short (between bars) tour of this district and believe it or not Tim I took in every word.

Budapaest VII is the city's historic Jewish enclave and from the late 1800's until the early 1930's the area was a prosperous residential and industrious one. During this period the neighbourhood took on its present-day appearance with its five-storey apartment blocks built around central courtyards, along with a trio of major synagogues including the Dohany Schul.

On the run-up to World War II, as the pro-Nazi Arrow Cross party came to prominence and Hungary joined the German Axis alliance, anti-Semitism reared its ugly head and the 1938 Nuremberg Laws officially defined Jews as second-class humans.

Ironically in the early days of World Was II Hungarian Jews fared much better than most of their European fellows. Despite the fact that they were severly restricted, and many of the men conscripted into forced labour battalions, the Government refused to allow their deportation.

As well as the Hungarian Government's refusal to deal forcibly with its Jews (apart from the 20,000 plus who died in forced labour camps) the Government had entered armistice negotiations with the Americans and British. In March 1944 the German Army invaded the country, installing their own choice of Prime Minister and takng control of the Hungarian Armed Forces.

Adolf Eichmann was sent by Hitler to organise the deportation and control of the Jewish population, a task he seems to have taken to with relish, and within three months of his appointment almost half-a-million Hungarian Jews had been sent to be executed in the concentration camps, mostly to Auschwitz.

Of the Jews remaining in the city those not deported, and who didn't have some kind of diplomatic protection, were later rounded up and forced to move into the walled ghetto in the area around the Great Synagogue where conditions of overcrowding and lack of food and medicines resulted in further tens of thousands of fatalities.

A sizeable minority managed to evade both deportation and ghettoization due to efforts of the Swedish and Swiss Diplomatic Legations and in particular the individual efforts of Raoul Wallenberg and Carl Lutz who issued safe conduct passes and set up houses under the protection of their respective Embassies.

The Russian Army liberated the ghetto and its estimated (by then) 70,000 inhabitants in Jan 1945 and with the 20,000 or so Jews who emerged from their various safe houses and other refuges brought the city's immediate post-war Jewish population to about 100,000, about half of what it had been in 1941. The modern Budapest VII is no longer solely a Jewish area but still has its three synagogues, several Kosher restaurants and some interesting little shops. Most of its buildings are survivors from its pre-war heyday and whilst some are a little down-at-heel many have recently been given serious makeovers and others are in the process.

There are several trendy-looking bars, restaurants and some upmarket shops but these are balanced by just as many little characterful places such as Kak Rosa where Tim and I enjoyed a very pleasant, and extremely reasonably-priced, lunch and the little camera shop which Tim pointed out where nothing was newer than maybe the original Polaroid.

Dohany utca, where the synagogue is, is a street of bars which tempt a serious mini-pub crawl and where the price of a "korso" (large beer) starts from 290 Forints and doesn't look as if it ever exceeds 400.

Yep definitely a place which needs a serious revisit next time I'm in town.

Location is everything!

by acemj

Budapest is in the middle of the country toward the northern end. Hungary shares its border with Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia so you're really close to many great sights in Central Europe.

Bier measures

by MedioLatino

In Hungary there are usually 2 sizes of beer in the pubs:
- Pohar (glass) usually means half of a pint
- Korso ("mug") is a pint (half liter)

There might be some extra sizes, but this is the standard. 1 liter mugs (called on some places "Krigli") are not that common over here.

Turkish neighborhood at the foot of Rozsadomb

by flevente

Well it's called Turkish, because in the good old Ottoman days, after they stole Buda castle without a gunshot from our stupid queen, the Turks lived here. Not much is left except the tomb of Gul Baba and some interesting houses and baths (like Rudas or Kiraly).
The houses in Gul Baba street are built in Turkish style and the neighborhood has a definite Ottoman feel to it. Definately worth a walk, it's a quiet place and has the most beautiful view on the city.

GET HERE:
Tram 4 or 6, get off at Margit Hid, Budai Hidfo, straight, turn right into Torok Street, go up the hill (Gul Baba str).

View from St. Gellert's statue

by MedioLatino

The Bridge below the St. Gellert statue offers a great view of the traffic of the Erzsebet (Elisabeth) Bridge. And it's also a good place to do a panoramic shot including the Chain Bridge, the Elisabeth Bridge and the Liberty Bridge with the buildings between them on the Pest side (Hotels, Inner City Church, Economical university...).
