What You'll Do
  • See the Choral Temple, inspired by the Leopoldstädter Tempel in Vienna
  • Discover the State Jewish Theater, housing the former legendary Barașeum Theater
  • Learn about the Museum of History of the Jewish Community “Moses Rosen”
Uncover the rich Jewish history integral to the city of Bucharest on an insightful walking tour of Bucharest's Jewish neighborhood with a private guide.
What to Expect
With only about 5,000 members of the Jewish community left in Bucharest today, it is rather difficult to imagine that in 1930 it represented up to 11% of the entire city’s population. The Jewish Quarter was severely affected by the Fascist pogrom in the 40s, followed by the demolitions initiated in the 1980's by the Communists, with most streets simply wiped out and 6 synagogues and Jewish temples demolished. Nevertheless, some emblematic buildings like the Great Polish Synagogue and the legendary Barașeum Theater have survived and are here to tell their stories.

Take a trip down the history lane and learn about some of the most influential Jewish personalities, like the Dadaist and Modernist architect Marcel Iancu and his landmark buildings, discover the major sights and cultural icons of the former Jewish Quarter in Bucharest and find out about a darker period of Romanian history.
