Grand Synagogue Budapest

The Dohány Street Synagogue, also known as the Great Synagogue is the largest synagogue in Europe

The Grand Synagogue was bombed by the Hungarian pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party, damaged during air raids during the Nazi Occupation and the Siege of Budapest. Used as a base during WWII it was again used as a prayer house for the small Jewish community during the the Communist era. Restoration began after the fall of Communism in 1991. The synagogue complex now includes the Hungarian Jewish Museum, Heroes' Temple, the Jewish Cemetery and the Raoul Wallenberg Holocaust Memorial Park.
