“not opened everyday”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

I would have loved to visit the place but it was always closed. However from the outside the bulding is very imposing to the vegetable market and shopping streets.

“Beautiful synagogue. Rabbi Josh very friendly.”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Lovely synagogue. One of the reasons we visited Sofia was to see the synagogue. It is an old style synagogue. We would like to go again on a festival day. The Rabbi was friendly and we met some members of the congregation. We didn't see the Museum.

“a must place for jewish people”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The central Sofia's synagogue is amazing.
It might be a little problematic to visit it – I heard from several people (including my guide) that the gates are usually closed and no one opens the door.
Fortunately, I had no problem visiting the place. The synagogue is well-preserved, the woodwork of the columns is impressive and the Menoras are beautiful.
The ceiling is magnificent and the whole atmosphere is moving.
I highly recommend visiting this synagogue – do not miss it if you are Jewish.

“Synagogue that is the most beautiful on the Balkans”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have visited it several times, attended the festivities for 100years of its building. This time were there with friends who are not of Bulgarian origin but they were very impressed by the beauty and athmosphere there.
