  • love it!
  • A mais antiga Sinagoga da Europa abriga o museu Judaico, com peças que contam a história deste religião no continente. Funciona de Domingo a Sexta, de 10:00 as 18:00 (Sexta até as 16:30). Fica próximo da estação do metrô: Astoria na linha M2.
  • 我只想说,在附近停车一定要注意!不止是要及时缴费,还要留意附近的🅿️标志,有些是固定车位,缴费也没用!就离开两分钟,回来就被锁了!罚了11500福林!
  • Contains beautiful objects of the Jewish religion. Cute.
