  • The building is absolutely unique and grandiose. Beautiful decor elements. In this state of total neglect causes a feeling of sadness and terror rather than admiration and enjoyment. But, in my opinion, worth it to visit. This unforgettable feelings

  • The synagogue was built in the Renaissance style with Baroque elements and included into the system of city walls. The synagogue and Jewish city walls were gates, and it could serve as a powerful defensive Tower. Built in 1698 g. with the assistance of King Jan III Sobieski in place of the burnt wooden synagogues. During the second world war were destroyed and Interior supporting columns were destroyed, but the roof stayed intact. Before the start of the 1990-ies, the building was used as a warehouse. Unfortunately, the restoration does not keep, Windows are broken.
