Across the Danube from Buda Castle, multi-faceted Erzsébetváros, named after an emperor’s wife, cradles Budapest’s historic Jewish quarter, numerous ruinpubs and the bucolic City Park.
Rub shoulders with locals at ruinpubs – not, as the name suggests, seedy dives –but funky cafe-bar-community centre hybrids. And you’ll see them all over multicultural Erzsébetváros. Europe’s largest functioning synagogue is just one of the emblematic buildings you’ll bump into in this up and coming hood.
