Eastern Hungary

  •  You can walk in the streets of Tokaj and the neighbouring villages, famous for their wine-producing areas, a business where Jews were, for many centuries, very active.
  • Stop in Miskolc , the second biggest Hungarian city and a local Jewish centre in Eastern Hungary.

Western Hungary

  • There won’t be any regrets as the towns in this area have the earliest traces of the Jewish communities dating back to the 13th century.
