The Jewish link


Imagine medieval Bucharest at the crossroads between the east and the west, with a rich history of trades and crafts. One of the most influential communities in the development of the city were the Jewish with their guilds: from glass blowers and cobblers to fur dealers and hat makers. We explore the remaining Jewish quarter street by street, listing one of the world’s first Jewish theatres and synagogues. Of course we’re going to stop in one of our favourite hot-spots to refresh and to enjoy traditional cuisine. On our way back to the Old Town we shall take one of the oldest trade routes leaving you at the edge of its buzzing centre.

Local Hosts has proven us that Bucharest is a city with many secrets and unknown old tales. I have now a better understanding of the background of the city, we explored beautiful parks and the oldest cemetery, while enjoying a traditional meal and a cold beer. Highly recommended for people who like tours with a personal touch and passionate guides! Thank you for a great day!
