It was hard to find but disappointing to discover that this beautiful synagogue housed an exhibition which was only partially ready. Nevertheless it was a chance to connect up with Romania's Jewish past

The building is interesting and free to enter with ID. It is under renovation so make sure to visit the Great Synagogue 2 minutes away for more information.
