Jewish Tour of Bucharest

Some say that a city’s charm lays in its ability to adapt and shape accordingly to the changing times. Still, one will always get nostalgic and wonder how the city used to be in a different time, with different people, in past worlds that seem to be forever lost.

We invite you to embark on a journey into the Jewish Bucharest, the world of a community which once used to be the largest minority in the city, with over 70 temples and synagogues and who played a huge role in the evolution of the Romanian capital.
You will get the chance to discover Bucharest’s most important buildings, such as the Royal Palace (nowadays the Art Gallery), the Romanian Athenaeum and many more, and find out about the very important role the Jewish community has played here.

You will also get a chance to discover the remains of the Jewish district, the Great Synagogue and the Jewish theatre, but also to discover more about the tragic destiny of this community in the 1930s and during the Second World War…
