There are not many places where you can say time stopped. I will take you to one such place in Budapest. It is overgrown and neglected, yet if you walk for 15 mins from the centre of the city, you will be rewarded with an experience you will never forget. This is a place of unanswerable questions, that you will find yourself asking. It contains magnificence and it contains decay. It contains love and it contains loss. It contains beauty and tragedy in equal measure. It is a place to explore and experience. A place of quiet words and quiet reflection. Let me take you there, to this place where time stopped: the forgotten Jewish cemetery of Budapest. We will cover the flowering of Hungarian Jewry from the late 1800's, through to its destruction and decline.

I'm an Englishman who has lived in Hungary for 32 years. This "island" nation of Hungary is my home. I speak the language. My affection for this country, plus my ability to step outside, allows me to give unique views and perspectives to guests. The feedback I receive from guests, even from Hungarians themselves, is universally positive, as I try explain Hungary as it was, and as it is. 

Note: I am a qualified Hungarian tour guide.
