Budapest, Hungary’s breathtaking capital, is a city with a split personality. Separated by the sparkling River Danube, Buda and Pest were once two separate cities: Buda, the ancient historic half on one side and Pest, the modern vibrant half on the other side. Experience the two parts’ distinct personalities with Buda offering fairytale architecture, thermal baths, stunning views, and an escape into nature and Pest (pronounced pesht, not pest) sizzling with life and authentic Hungarian cuisine after dark.


Hungary’s Jewish community, today home to the largest Jewish population in Central Europe, has endured a tumultuous but unique past. Our journey will focus on the devastating effects of the Holocaust on Hungarian Jewry, the erosion of Hungarian Jewish identity, and its subsequent rebirth.
