1. Budapest: The Great Synagogue Skip the Line Ticket
Skip the line and head straight to the security check to start your visit of the Great Synagogue, the largest synagogue in Europe and the second-largest in the world. Built in 1859, it is one of Budapest’s highlights with its red and yellow brick facade combining Romantic style with Moorish elements. Take a guided tour to hear about its history, architecture and the history of the Hungarian Jews before and after WWII. Then use your ticket to enter the Hungarian Jewish Museum next to the Synagogue. Learn about the life of the Jewish people in Hungary through everyday objects. See the famous Emmanuel Memorial Tree in the Synagogue's backyard. Admire this magnificent weeping willow's small metal leaves engraved with a name of a Holocaust victim and plaques honoring non-Jewish rescuers. Then, finish your visit the graveyard in the backyard of the Heroes’ Temple, the burial site of those who died in the ghetto during WWII.
