Gozsdu Courtyard is full of pubs and cool bars in the heart of the Jewish Quarter. This place has a very nice, laid back atmosphere, it's actually a long series of courtyards that are connected to each other. Gozsdu comes alive at night, my favorite Tapas Bar, Vicky Barcelona is also located here.
If you visit Budapest, don't miss the chance and check out the night life in the pubs and also discover the ruin pubs that are so trendy and popular nowadays. The idea of creating these pubs were coming from the fact that there are a lot of abandoned places in the capital, now these were transformed into low-key clubs that we call today ruin pubs. We can count over 200 such places in the Hungarian capital. You can find these pubs all over the city, but most of them are located in the Jewish Quarter. I visited Füge Udvar, it got its name from the fig tree, that's standing right in the middle of the pub, it definitely gives a certain Mediterranean feeling to the whole place. I enjoyed my Aperol Spitz, not to mention that these clubs are normally cheap.

Hidden jewels of the Jewish quarter – unique street art works
Jews have been present in Hungary since the 13th century. The Jewish quarter is located in the city center. The Great Synagogue is the second largest in the world and it includes the Jewish Museum, the Heroes' Temple, the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park and the Jewish Cemetery as well.
Honestly I was so lost in the Jewish quarter first, but as soon as you've found the Great Synagogue, you are at the right place to discover unique street art. Just follow the Wesselényi street right behind the Synagogue, both sides you will see street names like Kazinczy, Klauzál, Akácfa, Rumbach Sebestény and Király, these street art works can be found all around that area. The firewalls would be looking so sad without all the creative, fun paintings, that make the streets more colorful and full of life.
