Velká synanoga Reviews

It's absolutely beautiful and impressive, don't be too shy to ring the bell so they can let you in.


Likely, like many others, I was also in a synagogue for the first time when I visited this one. Just like all places of worship, this synagogue is very large and impressive. However, there is an entrance fee, but in exchange, men are given a kippah - essentially as a souvenir. In general, if you're in Pilsen and have never been inside a synagogue, this is a good opportunity to have a look and learn a bit more about Judaism.


The 3rd largest synagogue ( shul ) in Europe. Beautifully restored and fully renovated. A must visit for all who are interested/curious in European Jewry.


This synagoge is impressive. It's the second largest synagoge in Europe and third largest in the world. It was built by architect Emanuel Klotz in 1888 after the initial plan by architect Max Fleischer was rejected by the mayor. The synagoge survived WWII by being turned into a storage hall. During Communism it was shut down. The last service took place in 1973. It was not until the 90s that the dilapidated building was renovated. Today, it is beautifully maintained and has a lot of information available, found on digital displays on the first floor. It's worth browsing through them.


The synagogue is an interesting visit. The structure is impressively large and can host many worshippers on the ground floor and the balcony. The temple is very beautifully decorated with wood and plaster finishing and many religious ornaments. Some walls have amazing stained-glass windows. There was a nice photography exhibition when we were there as well.
