I am living on the countryside of Hungary, in a small city. Sometimes I feel that I need to refill my cultural knowledge and interest. The best city is Budepest to get know some interesting elements of the hungarian culture and history. Unique collections and exhibitions can be found in the museums, mainly in the Pest side. I have visited the Jewish Museum where I heard a lot of interesting and shocking informations about Jews habits, holidays and the Holocaust. After this visit I have took a part on a 3 hour tour, which theme was the Jewish history, ruins, habits and Synagogues in the Jewish District near to the Dohány Street area. I could never believe before, that this Synagogue is the 2. biggest in the world. After this trip I made I walk to the Saint Stephen's Basilica, which is really near to the Jewish area. This Basilica is the 2. biggest building in the country. In it's capel the mummified right fist of our first king is guarded. Thanks for the special acustic, unique Organ Concerts can be visited at weekends. Buring this concerts the organ is followed by flute and a Kossuth awarded hungarian opera singer, Kolos Kováts. Other classical concerts can be found in this area, like Symphony Concerts accompanied with Cimbalom. This instrument is a hungarian one, named dulcimer. It can be unusual to include traditional folk instrument in a symphony orchesra, but it gives the speciality of the performance. I found an other program for evening, but it is not tipical cultural program, rather relaxing end of a culture filled day. There are several ship cruises on the Danube, leaving between 19:00 and 22:00. During the cruises every main sights can be seen from the middle of the river, like the Parliamet, Gellért Hill, Castle district, Palace of Arts etc. Some of the Danube cruises have live hungarian music performance on the board. Musician played famous songs for all of the guests. If you would like to enjoy a cultual city, Budapest is the best decision. :)
