There are four synagogues in the center of the old Jewish Quarter of Pest. The one in Dohány utca is the largest synagogue in Europe and the second largest in the world.

  1. Lovely photos shot with love.

    Are the synagogues operating today?

    • Three of them are active, only the one on the last two photos, originally built for the conservative Jewish community, is not in use anymore. Actually there are 17 synagogues in Bp, most of them are still alive.
