Spanish Synagogue, Prague

(4.4/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Prague itinerary builder makes visiting Spanish Synagogue and other Prague attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful synagogue can be visited with the tour of the many synagogues in the city. Very nice and cared for, according to me the best. It is definitely worth it

  • By far the most impressive of the Jewish Quarter synagogues. Two floors enable viewing artifacts up close and from the second floor balcony.  more »
  • From the street the synagogue looks like the old Soviet Union. However, by going inside, the impression changes dramatically. Beautiful design and decoration. The most beautiful synagogue in Prague

  • An absolutely beautiful building with part of the Jewish Museum's collection displayed within. The museum collection (overall, between all the sites) is interesting, but come here for the architecture and decoration.
  • Of the synagogues I've been inside in Prague, this is probably the best or most beautiful. It's not very big, but it has interesting decoration inside. I'm not a fan of synagogues and I don't think this one specially worth the visit, but the ticket for visiting 4/5 synagogues is not very expensive and this is an example of the best you can get. Just look at the pictures and you'll decide.
  • The interior of the synagogue of beautiful! Definitely should be on your itinerary if you are in the Jewish quarter. Also, this is one of two synagogues that you can visit without buying the Jewish quarter tour. So if you want to just see one thing, this is the place! Tickets are very reasonable too (70 cz)
  • Beautiful building outside, and even more inside.
  • Beautiful synagogue in the Jewish quarter. This is one of the two synagogues that you can visit without doing the entire tour.
