Spanish Synagogue, Prague

4.5
Colorful stained glass and elaborate Oriental motifs decorate the interior of Spanish Synagogue, the newest of the six Jewish synagogues in Prague. Built in the second half of the 19th century and considered the crown jewel of the city's Jewish quarter, the building is an outstanding example of the Moorish Revival architectural style. A pair of domed turrets tops the central section of the building's tripartite facade, making this one of the most recognizable structures in the city. Visit the upper-floor prayer hall to see an exhibit narrating the history of Prague's Jewish community, and containing thousands of items representing the work of many generations of goldsmiths from Bohemia and Moravia.

  • We have been to Prague many times and now for the first time in the Jewish Quarter. The station wagon ticket is good and you can see a lot. What is much more important is one to get explained a great deal, for example, in the Spanish Synagogue on the basis of the many showcases and now sees this from a different glance. The other visits were very good and informative, but then everything from tourists is full on Sundays around noon and you have to force your way through.

  • Of all the synagogues in Old Town Prague, this is definately the best and most beautiful. Great for the photographer but please ready and take notice of the exhibition. The Jewish Quarter is a great way to spend a morning and an opportunity to learn more about the Jewish history.
  • Best of all the synagogues I visited in the Jewish quarter. It is full of colors and it has some nice explanations inside there. I would deffinetely recommend it!
