“Beautiful synagogue, worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Choral Synagogue is actually well signposted. Open only a few hours/day (10-2pm), it is one of very few Jewish buildings still in use for worship following the devastation of the very large Jewish community in Vilnius in the Holocaust.
Built in 1903, it is a grand domed building and worth a visit to admire the grandeur of the time.

“Nothing to see nowadays”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Sadly, there is nothing to see in this place. The synagogue was ruined after WWII. Now in its place is a kindergarden built during soviet times. It is onl historical place and nothing else.
