The Great Synagogue of Stockholm is simple yet beautiful. It provides good information on the history of the Jewish community in Sweden and Scandinavia, offering a sobering exhibit on World War II.

Beautiful on the inside. There is security on the outside which may hinder your entering during services. Outside is very interesting. Photo of Western Wall covers the courtyard wall. There is a kosher restaurant on the grounds.It is well worth a visit.

Absolutely stunning! We took a tour and received a comprehensive and enlightening history of both the Synagogue and the Swedish Jewish community overall. Would highly recommend attending. It's about an hour long and well worth it!
