The beautiful Jewish Neighbourhood by the river is one of the most beautiful spots in Europe. Tradition and avant-garde meet and deliver. Design, food, shopping, art, music and everything you can ask for: Budapest hast it.
BRODY HOUSE: the coolest boutique hotel in the city. A mix of antics with extravaganza come together in a unique hotel. You’re lucky the city outside is so great, you wouldn’t leave the building otherwise. Bródy Sándor u. 10
MONO ART & DESIGN: this concept store inside a restored building works as art gallery, furniture, clothing and design objects store and “operations center” for the local modern/hipster movement. Kossuth Lajos, 12.
ATTABOY: the burger fever has reached Budapest and this cosy space has the best ones in town; it also offers pizzas, salads and delicious home-made desserts. Síp, 4.
GOZSDU UDVAR: a former ghetto space turned into entertainment, gastronomy & vintage market venue with underground spirit. Király, 22.

LUMAS: this photography gallery is the place to be. Contemporary art and showrooms, where you can enjoy and even buy all the pieces. Október, 6.
RAMENKA: grandma’s asian food. Low prices, great food, lovely atmosphere. Perfect to fuel up. Kacinczy, 9.
DOHÁNY SINAGOGUE: one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe and also the biggest synagogue with space for 3000 people. Don’t forget it’s closed on Shabbat! Dóhany, 2.
