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.
