    It was nice to already have a ticket because the line to purchase was long even before 10am. We went straight in and up to the museum to look around before people came in or I’d suggest going straight back to the Raoul Wallenberg Holocaust Memorial Park and get pictures before everyone comes inside. The first tour started at 10:30 and meets inside the synagogue. This is a very interesting building and the Jewish quarter shouldn’t be missed.

    Very good experience the visit to the great synagogue of Budapest, necessary to understand what happened years ago in the Jewish ghetto. A pity that one of the Spanish-speaking guides, a certain Susana, is so dry and rude with the tourists that we are going to spend some time in the synagogue.

    The ticket saves a lot of time. The check in line is really big, because this place is attracting people from all over the world. The time you saved, you can spend rather to explore the Synagogue. I recommend to go prepared for a visit: no miniskirt, shorts or sleeveless tops.
