#2 of 15 in Historic Sites in Pilsen
Admire stained glass windows and ornate ceilings of Great Synagogue, the third largest synagogue in Europe. A landmark building, the synagogue features impressive 45 m (148 ft) tall twin towers with Russian-style onion domes. A mixture of Romantic-era and neo-Renaissance styles, the facade is covered with Oriental decorations and includes a giant star of David. Completed in 1893, the interior boasts an Arabic-style ceiling and a distinctly Indian-looking Torah ark. The central hall makes a popular venue for concerts, while the walls often provide space for photo exhibits.

  • The beautiful place, especially the concerts here have an incredible atmosphere and I can warmly recommend it to all. One of the most beautiful buildings in Pilsen, which should not be omitted when visiting the West Bohemian metropolis.

  • If you pass by Pilsen you must also enter this synagogue, testimony of the great importance and strength of the Jewish community throughout the Czech Republic. Interesting interiors but above all the photographic exhibition on life in Pilsen in the 20s-30s of the last century.
