New Synagogue, Szeged

(4.6/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
The Szeged Synagogue is a synagogue in Szeged, Hungary. It is a 1907 building designed by the Jewish Hungarian architect Lipót Baumhorn (1860–1932,), whose work is considered to contain the finest examples of the unique fin de siècle Hungarian blending of Art Nouveau and Historicist styles sometimes known as Magyar style. It served Szeged's large Neolog community.The building's interior, with its 48.5m tall domed ceiling, draws on multiple historical styles to produce its overall Art Nouveau/Moorish Revival style. The rib-like wall above the organ has Gothic origins, while the columns supporting the galleries are Roman.The interior of the great dome, and all of the building's stained glass, are the work of the artist Miksa Róth.The design of the Torah Ark alludes to the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Solomon by using sittimwood from the banks of Nile, the wood called for in the building of the Temple of Solomon in 1 Kings. The hinges are in the shape of the Hyssop plant, a plant used in the ancient Temple service.The Szeged Synagogue is the second largest in Hungary after the Dohány Street Synagogue in Budapest, and the 4th largest in the world.

  • This is one of the most overwhelming building what I've seen. It is worht to visit. But before you'll do, you have to call +3662423849 for reservation.  more »
  • Mandatory, non-Jews as well! In the case of a closed gate number selected, opened within 5 minutes! Art Nouveau wonder, decorated with "Jewish plants" (inside information).
