Tips for visiting Dohány Street Synagogue

As it is a place of worship, there are some basic rules regarding what you can wear when using your Dohány Street Synagogue tickets. All clothing must cover shoulders and knees. A headcover for men is available upon entry and can be purchased on the spot.

All visitors must go through a security check before entry, while large backpacks and suitcases are not allowed inside and cannot be stored onsite. Guests who do not comply with the above rules may be refused entry.

When you buy Dohány Street Synagogue tickets, you'll get to experience one of the most spectacular (and huge) religious buildings in the world. It's the largest synagogue in Europe by some margin and one of the largest in the world. Dohány Street Synagogue is 75 meters long and 27 meters wide, with seating capacity for almost 3,000 people, as well as additional standing places.

One of the most unique aspects of Dohány Street Synagogue is the building's architecture. Built in the Moorish-revival style, the synagogue features architectural motifs and design principles more reminiscent of North African and Spanish medieval architecture than traditional Jewish architecture.

The building's Viennese architect, Ludwig Förster, made this aesthetic design choice to reference the Arab culture that has been historically associated with the Israelite people.

For years, Budapest has been the wellness center of Europe. Bathhouses have flourished here ever since Roman times, and the lifestyle was refined after the conquest by the Turks. A relaxing day in this beautiful spa complex whisks you back in time among giant pillars and soothing pools, and puts you and your aching limbs in the largest medicinal bath in Europe!

The Szt. Lukács Thermal Bath and Pool has a long history dating all the way back to the 12th century when knights of the order of Saint John, engaging in curing the sick, settled in the area of today's Lukács Bath. They were followed by the orders of Rhodos and Malta, who built their monastery’s baths. The bath operated through the time of the Turks but the energy of the springs were used primarily to produce gunpowder and for grinding wheat. In 1884, the bath was privately purchased and transformed into a spa hotel with up-to-date hydrotherapy and a modern swimming pool. Travellers would come from around the world looking for a cure, and would place marble tablets o­n the wall of the Bath's courtyard to express their gratitude of a successful treatment. While medicine has moved on, the baths still offer a regenerative experience and a perfect place to relax.

The largest church in Hungary is a spectacular sight to behold. The neo-Classical St. Stephen’s Basilica is dedicated to Hungary’s first king, St. Stephen and it's still home to his mummified right hand - the Szent Jobb (Holy Right Hand). How lovely. Visitors climbing to the cupola can see the whole of Budapest, and down to St. Stephen's Square, where people sip coffee on cafe terraces.
