Best of Budapest: The Jewish Quarter

Today was a day full of surprises. A walk along the Jewish Quarter in the daytime showed a completely different side of the city.

A new perspective that suggests there’s more to Budapest than yesterday’s dark history and today’s sleepless party scene.

We stumbled upon an Indian Holi celebration (at a Mexican pub of all places). A truly colorful moment.

Then in our search for ruin pubs, we not only discovered the infamous Szimpla Kert, but also the concept of a Living Library.

Living Libraries are gatherings in local and open places where instead of checking out a book, you check out a person, and they give you their honest perspective and personal experience on the topic of the library that day. Today’s topic was the struggle of the immigrant and the foreigner in a strange land.

What a surprisingly good day.
