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.

A beautiful Art Nouveau/Moorish masterpiece of synagogue architecture.
Jun 2021
Dating from the early 20th century, this is one of the most exquisite of Prague’s famous synagogues. The blue and gold colours and the Moorish inspired architecture give it a fascinating and unique look. The building is open to the public, with the upper gallery being accessible via a stairway at the front of the synagogue. Various exhibition pieces, particularly in the upper section, show the history of the synagogue and the community who lived here. It is a very worthy addition to any Prague itinerary, and a must-see for anyone interested in Jewish history in Prague.

A great historic building but be ready for an emotional experience
Aug 2019
During a recent stay in Prague my wife and I visited this Synagogue which we stumbled on whilst walking the streets of the city. We had already visited the whole of the Jewish quarter which was incredibly moving. There was an exhibition on the top balconies documenting the life of the Jewish population after WWII when the Russians took control. Reading the panels were very emotional when you discovered that the persecution of their community continued under Russian occupation something that was not fully aware of.

The building itself was very interesting and well worth a visit.

Prague or Jerusalem?
Sep 2019
You cannot miss it, the Jerusalem Synagogue looks different from any other nearby building, and it is so peculiar that you cannot help entering. Once inside, you will file like being in Jerusalem, or any other country in the Middle-East. The synagogue was hosting a photography gallery when I visited it, I guess they often host temporary galleries. It definitely deserves a visit.

Very Interesting - worth to visit
Dec 2018
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.

Beautiful

A very beautiful building from the outside, and even more from the inside. Couldn't help but wonder how this must have been when it was active and full with worshipers.
We enjoyed the photo exhibition on the first floor.

Beautiful synagogue with interesting exhibitions
Nov 2019
Beautiful, both the interior and exterior. There was a small art exhibition on the first floor and on the second floor there were several photoexihibitions/ information about jews in Prague, during and after the second world war, also one about the rebuilding and restoration of synagogues and other jewish monuments in the czech republic. Absolutely worth 100 czk in entry fee.

In a narrow street meet such an unusual building. Amazing combination of secession and Moorish style.

Beautiful building

We did not do a tour or go inside but one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. The only downside was that it was overcast, and I think the colors would have been even more vibrant with a little bit of sunshine.
