People who visit the Great Synagogue at Dohány Street, the biggest in Europe and the second largest in the world, will also have access to the Jewish museum on the sight of the former house of Theodor Herzl. They may as well visit the Jewish cemetery and the Heroes Temple with Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park in the back courtyard. The Jewish museum was built in 1931/1932. The complex was restored in the late 1990s, including the onion shaped domes of the neo-Byzantine oriental style synagogue. The synagogue is also a place for outstanding concerts and has a wonderful organ, and even Franz Liszt played here during the inauguration ceremonies of the synagogue. During religious services, people have to respect the rules. There are no group visits possible during these times. There is also the Herzl gift shop worth a visit.
The Jewish cemetery also contains mass graves from WWII. See the memorial tree in Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park and the sculpture dedicated to him in Raoul Wallenberg Street, the former Phoenix street.
Guided tours to the Jewish Quarter are offered. Visit also the Swiss diplomat Carl Lutz memorial, which was unveiled in 2006 in the park adjacent to the U.S. Embassy at Szabadsag Square 12. As well, a must is the monument “Iron shoes” of sculptor Gyula Pauer at Danube promenade (Pest embankment).
