We tried to visit the synagogue but we're told by the woman in the cafe that it is closed. We're pretty sure that wasn't true but there was nothing to be done. The cafe is housed in the rabbi's apartment so we looked around a bit. We were also told we could not order food so we left. An email... More

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

we notice the "cafe sinagoga" sign before we realized its a sinagogue. it looks like a church and only the stained glass with the star of david tells the truth. to enter you need to ask for the keys in the cafe (kosher). this is not a working sinagogue, exept for spacial occetions, and inside there is a small museum...

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.
