Wonder Around is a joint effort of the Hungarian Jewish Museum and Archives and Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design’s TechLab to make a long forgotten, hidden gem available to the greater public all around the world. The virtual tour lets the visitor peak into this enchanted world, the old Jewish cemetery of Budapest. It is not merely interesting because of the many prominent figures of the early 20th century buried here, but because of the unique architectural values of the tombs. The Salgotarjani Street Jewish Cemetery is one of the finest example of the Hungarian Cemetery Art.
You can find out more about the cemetery here.
