The star visit in Lucenec
Nov 2018 • Friends
This synagogue is well worth a visit if only to appreciate the Jewish community that lived locally until they went on a one way train trip north. When I first saw this building it was very sad and neglected. I was very heartened that it was decided to restore it. Some external work is not back to original but has been saved at least. I am lucky to live in the socialist apartment buildings opposite so can appreciate every day on the way to the town or pub. Not far away there is a Jewish cementary but it is locked so not possible to visit except by arrangement. An Englishman living locally.

A tragic rebirth
Aug 2018
Lucenec has no Jewish community to speak of. It's gran d synagogue stood for 70 years after the Holocaust, a decaying hulk in the center of town, a reminder of the Jewish community that was exterminated by the Nazis with the support of the Slovaks, The restoration has given new life to the structure, but has not restored the details of color, stained glass or purpose of this house of worship. Nevertheless it is worth a visit to this somnolent town if only because the architecture is sublime, and the local authorities have had the decency to make it very clear that this was a synagogue by way of a small Jewish museum in it rear balcony.

Lucenec synagogue is a huge, noble, and faboulous building which sticks out like a sore thumb as it is located in the middle of concrete jungle made of socialist blocks . It is really breathtaking and was reconstructed with a sense for detail. Make sure to pay a visit to this place when visiting Lucenec and its surroundings.

Recently visited this synagogue. It's still not completely renovated on the inside. However, it has a special character and vibe. Some interesting artifacts and stories to read about. It is currently used for special events and as a gallery.

What an interesting surprise, especially if you've seen the building before the restoration! The restoration team has done an excellent job in preserving this building for future generations. Worth a visit.

Worth the visit
Aug 2016 • Family
The synagogue was after many dozens of years of neglect nicely reconstructed and is now open for guided tours. You have to look at the time table when the synagogue is open. The guided tour is given by a local lady who gives a interesting tour. We learned about the history and enjoyed the interior.
Not sure if they have tours in a foreign language, but worth taking a look.

Newly refurbished and brought back to life

It was refreshing to see that this building has now been totally renovated to a high standard, tours around the build can be had on Sundays, I believe from 1400 to 1600, well worth a visit just to see the craftsmanship of Slovakian tradesmen

Must visit place in Lucenec
Nov 2016 • Friends
Beautiful historical building. As far as I remember it used to be/ or still is the most biggest Synagogue in Slovakia. Since December 2015 is this beautiful place partialy reconstructed and possible to visit during visitor days (usualy Sunday each hour from 2pm until 4 pm). Actually it does not belong to Jewish community anymore but it is in Lucenec city hands. The building of Synagogue serves as multifunctional cultural center.
