Spanish Synagogue, Prague

4.4
Colorful stained glass and elaborate Oriental motifs decorate the interior of Spanish Synagogue, the newest of the six Jewish synagogues in Prague. Built in the second half of the 19th century and considered the crown jewel of the city's Jewish quarter, the building is an outstanding example of the Moorish Revival architectural style. A pair of domed turrets tops the central section of the building's tripartite facade, making this one of the most recognizable structures in the city. Visit the upper-floor prayer hall to see an exhibit narrating the history of Prague's Jewish community, and containing thousands of items representing the work of many generations of goldsmiths from Bohemia and Moravia.

  • Do not fail to visit this synagogue, the most beautiful of the city without a doubt. Although all have their charm.

  • It is indeed a beautiful synagogue. Didn't watch the concert because it was a bit too expensive and we didn't have enough cash for a concert ticket when we were there. It's not very much of a museum, only some information and a few photos or items relating to Jewish History in Prague. Good read though.
  • Stunning architecture and decoration accessible by purchasing a ticket to the Jewish Museum which also takes you through the cemetery and other Synagogues. It is well worth the time to visit and I am so glad I stumbled across it.
  • Not worth the money honestly. The entrance is 10$ and I wasn’t really impressed. The lady was nice tho cause she let me go in for 241 krones instead of 250. That’s only personal opinion
  • Beautiful :) Could be a little better with the sharing of information. Maybe a bit more interactive? Or a silent documentary playing? Now it was just hovering above the tables..
  • Ahh what a place. It seats very few people so the experience is especially unique. I definitely recommend catching a classical concert here. There are some great food and drink option right next door too. The concerts start at 5-6pm and doors open 15 min prior. Photography is allowed before and after but they don't give you too much time to loiter after so get in as early as you can.
