You have to go knock on the door of a flat around the corner for the entrance. It is a bit tricky to make contact with the right person but generally people in the neighborhood can help you find the right person who can open the doors for you. It is definitely worth the trouble because the inside is breathtaking.... More

Good thing to visit in Szeged. Go in the evening or in the morning, not at the noon. It's in the central part of the city.

The szeged synagogue is a must see place when arriving to szeged. Probably one of the most beautiful synagogue in the whole world. We was very disappointed that it was unpossible to visit since its open only between 9-12.

It's a huge synagogue, almost like dohany synagogue in Budapest. Worth to visit. You have to pay before the entrance, not a lot.

The synagogue is easy to find. Do not become bewildered on regard to its exterior which looks slightly neglected. Inside it is a feast of colours and dignity and in parallel a testimony of a more or less bygone era. Photographies are allowed. Do not trust on the opening hours as given on their website. According to their signposting at... More

Please, if you are in Szeged don't miss it. The Synagogue is a huge building looking like a cathedral from outside and it is extremely charming and fascinating. The admission is free but an offer is welcome. Inside it is richly decorated and there are photographs of the period when the Jewish community was numerous and active. It is an... More

Wonderful Art Nouveau building with marvellous stained glass windows. Exterior a bit ruiny, but the interior worth seeing. Entry fee applies (500 HUF)
