Additional Information

Introduction

At the edge of Budapest's Old Ghetto sits the Great Synagogue. Built in the late 1850s by Viennese architect Ludwig Forster, the synagogue features both Israeli and Arab architectural influences in its construction. The Great Synagogue is part of the Dohany Street Synagogue complex, including also the Jewish Museum and the Heroes' Temple. With historical ties to the Holocaust, the synagogue, along with the neighborhood itself, offers much to think about.
