Places to Visit on a Jewish Heritage Tour Along the Danube River

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator
One of the best ways to experience Jewish history is to set foot right where it happened. From Budapest to Vienna, the Danube River cuts through the heart of Jewish Europe - a region rich in culture and tradition. From medieval synagogues to the lively Jewish life of the past and present, this region is a journey for anyone who loves food and wine, history, architecture, or religion.
If you're considering taking a vacation along the Danube River but worry about finding kosher food, do not fret. Going aboard a kosher cruise for a future Danube vacation will allow you to enjoy delicious kosher cuisine while visiting the locales of Europe. With that said, here are some sights and synagogues you shouldn’t miss.

Heydukova Street Synagogue in Bratislava

There are many great synagogues to be found along the Danube River, as places of Jewish heritage endured to keep their ground throughout eras. One of them is the Heydukova Street Synagogue of Bratislava, Slovakia. Made in the Cubist style by a Jewish architect, this synagogue has survived various tumultuous events in the city’s lifetime, a place with an artistic facade and a cultural depth. 

Wachau Valley

The Wachau Valley of Austria is a magnificent sight, a fertile and pleasant vale that the Danube River passes through. You might be hesitant to visit busy cities for your future kosher vacations, but while we assure you that exploring the capital cities of Europe is awesome, you might be mollified to know that a trip through the Danube River is never complete without an immersive tour of a natural place like Wachau!

Jewish Museum in Budapest

Budapest is one of those European cities that have a long and complex history with the Jewish people. During the various highs and lows of Hungary’s relationship with the Jews, various religious artifacts were stored, preserved, and kept away from destructive hands. Nowadays, these Judaica can be found safely preserved in the Jewish Museum of Budapest.
