I read about this place and I went searching for it when I was in Prague. I passed next to it a few times without actually seeing it because only one part of thys building looks spectacular and you have to enter a park in order to see it. One can also buy tickits to go inside, but I decided... More

Regardless of your faith, the Spanish Synagogue is simply spectacular. We were fortunate to enjoy an evening concert in this exquisite performing space. Any visit to Prague should included a trip to this house of worship conveniently located near a famous modernist statue of Franz Kafka.

It was expensive but for those that appreciate Jewish History, it's worth paying for. Not only is it beautifully painted inside but it has a history of the Jews in Prague which I didn't know a lot of.

From the outside it doesn't look like a typical synagogue, which makes it interesting. Very colorful and nice looking

This Synagogue is indeed beautiful and unique. It is best appreciated by buying the full Jewish Museum ticket, so that you can also see the Pinkasova Synagogue, the Old New Synagogue, and the Jewish Cemetery. Even though you are not supposed to take pictures in these buildings, everyone is and no one is stopping them, which is quite annoying!

Go during the day to really see the spectacular interior and the moving exhibit about the Jews in Prague. We went back in the evening and heard a one-hour concert of classical 'hits.' The intimate and beautiful setting made the music extra special - my (teenage) son and I found this a very relaxing and enjoyable evening. Note tickets are... More

The synagogue is beautiful both from the inside and outside. All the decoations and organs are very nice and interesting. On the first floor you can fint several exhibits with an interesting history. The building itself is nice decorated and the style is very interesting. Since this is a religious place, I think that people who visit it should have... More

This is really worth a visit. Built in the 18th century in Morrish art-modejar- this synagogue is beautiful. It ressembles a lot of the islamic art we can see in Morocco. There is a museum, but we skipped it!
