Dohány Synogogue was built in 1859, this is the world's second-largest synagogue (and the largest in Europe). The interior is vast and ornate with two balconies and an organ. The two domes make it one of most recognisable landmarks in Pest.

There are two impressive 'Moorish' style domes which make it one of the most distinguishable landmarks in Pest. Donations came from all around the world for the restoration work including from Tony Curtis who is of Hungarian origin.
