    An essential experience. The main body of the synagogue is magnificent. The museum and the memorials that form part of the complex are both interesting and a heartbreaking reflection of the suffering of the Jewish people. Afterwards, go and see the memorial of the shoes of the murdered Jewish children on the Danube bank close to the Parliament. Poignant in the extreme

    I really liked it, the guide was very friendly, very efficient and very receptive to questions, in my case I had a guide in Spanish and when he realized that she was Portuguese, he kindly asked if he was understanding and many times he even spoke in Portuguese. Grade 10

    A must go. In the synagogue men must have their heads covered, inside they give a paper covering for the entrances. The guide was not fully appreciated, he spoke fast and without interest for others to be able to hear, he gave us a meeting point outside the synagogue and was nowhere to be found. Meanwhile he talked to others in the group and didn't want to repeat to us what we couldn't hear. One star less for her!!
