Kharkov synagogue was built more then one hundred years ago (in 1913). It is the second biggest synagogue in Europe. After communist reign its beautiful interior was ruined and only in the early 2000-ies its reconstruction was completed. Now Kharkov synagogue is one of the biggest attractions of the city.

The main active Synagogue of Kharkov. Originally built before the communist revolution of 1917, the temple was used as a sports centre during the Soviet years. Jewish community of Kharkov (roughly 30 thousand people) managed to get the synangogue back after the Independence of Ukraine.
