The Great Synagogue

1 Dec

Winter Waltz II braved some damp chilly elements, not to mention jet lag, for a walk to the Jewish Quarter and tour of the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe, its cemetary and back courtyard. Our local guide detailed the history of the Synagogue and Jewish settlement in Hungary and Budapest. Later this afternoon, some will ride the tram to Central Market Hall, Budapest’s largest market. Others will rest up for our welcome feast at the Historic New York Cafe.
