Chabad-Lubavitch rabbis in Hungary opened two new synagogues in the Budapest area.

The larger synagogue in Újlipótváros, a central area of the capital city, is housed in a riverside building overlooking the Danube River. It will be part of a three-story Jewish community centre and worship complex being built by EMIH, the Chabad-affiliated Jewish federation of Hungary, the group said in a statement.

The other synagogue is in Szentendre, a northern suburb of Budapest.

Both synagogues were opened on Sunday.

Hungary has about 100,000 Jews, by far the largest Jewish community in Central Europe.
