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

We really liked the explanation and the data that the guide told us. The visit was enjoyable and interesting. Very happy with the visit.

Highly recommend visiting and having the guided tour. Very informative guide and an emotive experience.

Fabulously informative and emotional experience. Wonderful mix of guiding and self discovery.
