Bucharest Jewish Heritage Tour | Private Walking Tour

Visit the main highlights of the Jewish Heritage in Bucharest on a private tour of the old Jewish neighborhood.

The private tour covers the centuries old rich history of the local Jewish community and focuses on the beautiful heritage of the Jewish neighborhood. At the heart of this area are three beautiful 19th century temples, hidden from sight behind communist buildings from the ’80s.

Two of the synagogues host museums dedicated to the the History of Jews in Romania and commemorating the Holocaust. The recently renovated and amazingly beautiful Choral Temple is the main active synagogue in Bucharest.

Despite the small size of the community, Jewish heritage in Romania is alive in many aspects of local history, social and cultural life. A few examples from the tour are: the Jewish State Theater, the Jewish secular school and the modernist architecture designed by Marcel Iancu.
