The area
Address
Neighborhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

    Impressive synagogue
    This was the first time I visited a synagogue and it was an unique experience. While the exterior was in the refurbishment process, it can be seen that its design is quite impressive. The interior is just mesmerizing, inspired by Moorish style and rich in beautiful and colorful details. Inside there is an exhibition regarding Jewish culture and community in Prague, educational and informative.

    Spectacular temple with quite a history
    Not near the Jewish Quarter - it's near Wenceslas Square or the train station. Spectacular example of Moorish architecture - even has some graphical patterns similar to the Alhambra embedded in the walls. Still active, so avoid visiting on Saturday. Yes, there is a fee, but there are full-time personnel on duty when it is open and they have to be paid for somehow. Panels outside the left side of the building as you enter tell the fascinating history of the place, which was opened in 1906 and served as a warehouse during the Nazi occupation of WW2. NOT named for the City of Jerusalem, but rather for the street it is on, which in turn was named for a church. Had an exhibit upstairs on the history of the many Jewish communities around Czechia, many of which date back to the 13th Century.

    Stunningly beautiful synagogue
    Stunningly beautiful and historic synagogue in a beautiful city. Highly recommend a visit. I loved visiting the Spanish Synagogue too but I personally find this synagogue more unassuming and more beautiful. Plus they have a lot of information and a video on display. I learned from the synagogue info that Soviet antisemitism was rampant, and didn’t realise this.

    Jewish Prague
    A wonderful temple, which reminds us of the Moorish style of Cordoba. Full of symbolic details, warm colors, and silence full of meaning. It also has an exhibition on the history of Prague's Jewish community.

    An absolute must see
    We turned the corner and and couldn’t see anything, then walking forward a little made us look up and all I can say is wow. A beautiful synagogue I’ve ever seen. A must see, reading the history and pictures was great. Having MS it was hard but was well worth it, parts are not accessible if you can’t walk.

This is one of the most colorful, stunning synagogues that I've ever been in. The architecture is truly unique. Very different from the Jewish Quarter but definitely worth the visit. It's about 15-20 minutes from the Jewish tour area.

Lots of people visit the Jewish quarter in Prague, but if you have time, swing by this Synagogue also. I think this was the prettiest Synagogue I have seen, I loved all the bright vibrant colors. The staff working there were also very friendly.

Quite beautiful but very sad. The syngogue is still active (in a small room) however you can still feel the past in the main prayer hall

Unfortunately, I couldn't locate my photos, but worth a visit. It was my first time of visiting a Synagogue. The building is not too old itself, but shows dedication and hard work of Jewish people not to mention the informational traces of horrible holocaust.

Outside the jewish district.

Far from classic synagogue style... And rather similar in style to Catholic churches. Therefore, the whole building is quite beautiful.
