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.

  • And Nice on the inside. Unfortunately it was restored but the inside was fortunately all dazzling. Dear student there was a lady. It also would have been admitted for free:)

  • The synagogue is doing more impressive from the outside than the inside. In the middle there is no exposure of the nature museum. Admission costs 600 HUF per adult and was possible in specific times, perhaps from 9 to 12 and from 13 to 17 with the exception of Saturdays. It is worth to check it out before we go to the place.

  • The synagogue is located 30 minutes from the Novotel Hotel, Tisza Lajos Kossuth Lajos Avenue tour turn to the right and then left at the 3. Street in the Turkish Street and few minutes walk to the main entrance after we find ourselves. The synagogue is located in the stunning architectural masterpiece, it is a pity that the landscaping around it just started. The synagogue in the morning up to 9-12 and 13-17ig can be visited in the afternoon, entrance 500.0-ft. inside the kintihez we meet again, just like beauty and they did powerful works, because it's hard to find words. This lot of beauty must see!!!
