Marzipan Museum

From the series “Strange, Weird and Unusual Museums Amusing its Visitors”
The best museum in the world for Hungarians is located in Hungary, in the city of Szentendre. All exhibits in the 'sweetest' museum of the planet are made of marzipan. The founder of the museum is the world-famous confectioner Károly Szabó. The marzipan museum was opened in 1994, since then its collection has been constantly expanded and renewed. The museum halls are a mediatory between the sumptuous pastry shop and the art gallery. Sometimes you can hardly believe that the masterpieces presented in the glass-paneled glass windows are literally made of sugar.
'The sweet reproductions' of the world-famous paintings, the old furniture, the numerous statuettes and the tiny copies of the famous sights - the boom in the imagination of the talented confectioner is simply surprising. The most original museum expositions are the figure of Michael Jackson, as well as the realistic portrait of Mozart. Most of the exhibits exhibited were made by Károly Szabó. Some masterpieces were created by his talented pupils.
One of the halls, in spite of the museum's particularity, is devoted to the historical theme, and more precisely to the complicated relations between Austria and Hungary, which have also influenced the life of the talented confectioner. At present there are 5 marzipan museums in the world, the most famous and most visited is the museum in Szentendre. The popular museum is combined with the pastry shop and the cozy café, where visitors can taste the delicious original sweets and buy the exclusive gifts. ... Complete sights collection

Nagy Zsinagoga

From the series “The most luxury and famous synagogues”
The Great synagogue is located on Dohany Street in Budapest. It is one of the largest in Europe today. It was built in the middle of the 19th century. The largest Jewish community in Budapest lived in the area. Famous architect Ludwig von Förster worked on the project of a luxury building. He designed the equally beautiful building of the synagogue in Vienna before that. One of the main features of the two-story building is two towers with black domes. Their height is 44 meters.
Beautiful white and red bricks were used in the construction of the synagogue. Almost all the finishing elements of the historic building were preserved in their original form. The main hall never ceases to amaze with its scale. It can accommodate up to 3,000 parishioners at a time. Another building was built next to the synagogue in the first half of the 20th century. The Jewish Museum was opened there. Many Jews who lived in Budapest at that time were artists and writers. A significant part of the museum's exposition is devoted to their works.
The Nazis established their headquarters in the synagogue building during World War II. The Jewish cemetery is a vivid reminder of the difficult war times today. It is located in the inner courtyard of the synagogue. About 7,000 Jews who died during the war years are buried there. A beautiful monument was opened on the territory of the synagogue not so long ago. It is dedicated to the victims of the Holocaust. Reconstruction of the religious monument began immediately after the end of the war. It lasted until the 90s of the last century. ... Complete sights collection
