JEWISH HERITAGE

Budapest has an extraordinarily rich and fascinating Jewish heritage.

 

To talk about Hungarian culture and history without mentioning the Hungarian Jews, is like cooking without salt! The Hungarian Jews contributed a great deal to Hungarian music, literature, art, culture in general and especially science.
