  • The second largest Synagogue in Europe. Very beautiful and worth visiting not only to Jews but to non-Jews as well.

  • Also good to for the alternation to see also a Synagogue rather than just mark churches. Really therefore an exception.

  • Hit the synagogue accidentally passed by and saw an ad on opening times, just time for visitors. We called and admitted, but Hall was not hit because there was a feast and prayer on the 1-St floor in the male part of the synagogue. We were asked to climb on the 2-nd floor, place of prayer for women, then watched and 1 floor. Inside, everything is very modest, but very cozy and homey. When went down a little bit, a woman Rabbi's wife told about holiday hut celebrated that day. It was interesting.
