The Rubik's Cube was invented in 1974 by Ernő Rubik, a Hungarian architecture professor. 

The most impressive building in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest, the Dohany Street Synagogue, is the largest Jewish temple in Europe and the second largest in the world, that can seat 3,000 people.

It was built between 1854-59 in neo-Moorish style and is still the center of Hungarian Jewish life. During World War II, Dohany Street was a border of the Jewish ghetto, so the memory of the Holocaust is associated with the area.

The garden became the burial place of nearly 2,600 Jews.

The building currently is a house of prayer and a museum. The square is primarily the scene of religious services, but it is also a venue for cultural programs and concerts.
