20 reviews of Spanish Synagogue

Interior is beautiful

The exterior of the building is not too attractive, although the Moorish atmosphere of the interior is beautiful. Inside, you'll discover a real gem. Besides the beautifully decorated ceilings and walls, the temple shows books, records and photographs of the Jewish community in Prague and during the Holocaust. In another room is there is an exhibit of silver tools once used for painting Torahs. Outside there is a sculpture in honor of Franz Kafka.

+5

Most spectacular synagogue

Without a doubt, the Spanish Synagogue in the Jewish neighborhood of Prague is the most spectacular synagogue in the world. Built in 1868, it's the oldest synagogue in Prague and owes the "Spanish" part of its name to it's Moorish-revival decoration reminiscent of the Alhambra in Granada. You can visit every day except Saturday from 9am to 6pm. There's not individual ticket to the synagogue but rather a pass which lets you enter all of Prague's synagogues for around $25. I'd also recommend visiting the Klausen and Pinkas synagogues.
