  • Beautiful beautiful mosque, beautiful from outside and inside. Right next to the synagogue. Well worth a visit. Take something of a scarf to head, shoulders and arms cover. And pay attention to the opening hours! Not always open (closed on Sundays)

  • What a mosque and a synagogue are side by side, is the sign of respect, tolerance and love most beautiful I have ever seen... And it teaches us that it is possible to live in peace with the difference of beliefs as a wealth not as an excuse to hate us. Not to mention that a few streets Catholic churches and Hindu temples there is a better world is possible!.

  • Located right next to the most great synagogue in the Suriname.Beau complex to take pictures from the parking lot and from the street and if you go to the far right of the grid of the synagogue you can take pictures of the two institutions together. Show certain politicians.

Where to stay in Paramaribo

Paramaribo is packed with guesthouses, which make this town an extremely appealing destination for backpackers. The least expensive option in town, some of these establishments offer very basic rooms and shared restrooms without hot water--ask about on-site facilities before checking in. Dozens of mid-range hotels provide a more suitable option for families with kids, business travelers, and anyone else looking for a few more perks. If you're planning to stay longer, consider renting a furnished apartment in a residential neighborhood.
