During this tour we visit some beautiful sacred places: churches, synagogues and other places of worship.  You can let yourself be inspired by these special spaces, and we will also have enough time to talk about the different forms of spiritual experiences; trying to see the similarities and in how many and colourful ways they manifest in the world.

  • Inner City Parish Church: another inspiring church on the Pest side of the Danube. The building has a history of about 2.000 years. The first version of the church was built in the 11th century, on the walls of a Roman military camp. The undercroft of the church has been recently renovated and if we descend there, we can marvel at the ancient Roman ruins.
  • Orthodox Cathedral of our Lady: a richly decorated beautiful building of the Eastern Orthodox Church
  • A walk in the colorful and flourishing Jewish Quarter. Depending on your interest we can visit one or several synagogues.
  • Lutheran Church: a simple yet majestic building on the busiest square of the city. The Hungarian Lutheran Museum is just beside the church, it can also be included in the tour.

During the tour we will stop for coffee and/or lunch breaks.
