About Dohány Street Synagogue

The Dohány Street Synagogue, not just a house of worship but a monument to resilience and architectural splendour, stands as the largest synagogue in Europe and a beacon for the Jewish community in Budapest. 

This striking Moorish Revival edifice, with its twin towers reaching towards the skies, encapsulates a blend of sorrow and beauty, history and hope. It's a place where the past is ever-present, from the poignant Holocaust memorial in its courtyard to the vibrant life of its congregation. Visiting the synagogue isn't just about seeing; it's about feeling the pulse of a community that has endured through centuries.

Best time/season to visit:
While beautiful in any season, the synagogue's true spirit is best experienced during the Jewish High Holidays, when its historical and cultural significance is palpably felt.
