On Friday nights, you can still see in the Jewish Quarter in Budapest, those who are wearing Shtreimels, who have finished their prayers in the synagogue. On Saturdays, one can still see children wearing skullcaps and girls in long dresses.
Today the Jewish Quarter belongs to others. Since many young people moved here, mainly due to the low prices of apartments, it is considered a trendy and pleasant entertainment place, attracting a young and high-quality crowd from all over the city.
In 1900, the Jewish population in Budapest numbered 170,000 - a quarter of the city's population. Today, the city has less than half of that population, even though it is the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, the proportion to the city's population is minimal.
