The Jewish Cultural Festival in Budapest is a great opportunity to find out everything about Hungarian Jewish culture. The Jews played an important part in Hungary’s history. The city’s Jewish community has started to reborn in the previous couple of years. This cultural event reflects this ambition. The festival is organized by the Jewish Tourism and Cultural Centre. Come to the Hungarian capital at the end of summer, and visit some of the programs of this unique event to make your stay even more memorable!
