The Jewish Cemetery

Sightseeing Historical Walking

It is the final resting place of several famous local residents, such as Chief Rabbi Lipot Löw who was the first representative of the Hungarian moderate reformed (Neolog) movement. His son Chief Rabbi Dr. Immanuel Löw, who was said to be the most scholarly rabbi of his time, was a botanist who conceptualized the gorgeous stained-glass windows of the New Synagogue and the plants of the Biblical garden around it based on his internationally famous work entitled The Flora der Juden. You will see the tombs of journalists, writers, musicians, painters, photographers, industrialists and factory owners who played a decisive role in the life and development of Szeged.
