The synagogue now functions as an art gallery/ museum.If you are only going to see one synagogue in the Czech Republic, I... More

This is not a working synagogue, but has a little bit of jewish local history, a kosher restaurant on site, and when I was there, had a great photo exhibit.

Worth a visit if you pass by, we enjoyed the exhibition. There is also a cafe at the lower part of synagogue to get refreshment before the next sight.

Lots of pictures telling the history of the jewish community. Only the entry panels were in English but that was enough. It's not a long stop but it got us into this part of town.

I would not make a pilgrimage to see this but if I was in cesky krumlov it is a very nice walk and is fascinating. Photo display is captivating and first rate. But this is not a very old synagogue - from around 1910 so it is relatively recent history.

Well preserved and maintained. Quite interesting to see a synagogue in the Czech Republic. Self tour only takes 10-15 minutes.

My friends and I wanted to check the synagogue but it was behind a high fence and locked. Still, it's interesting because it's architecture is different, I don't see much synagogues.
