Create an itinerary including Spanish Synagogue
Colorful stained glass and elaborate Oriental motifs decorate the interior of Spanish Synagogue, the newest of the six Jewish synagogues in Prague. Built in the second half of the 19th century and considered the crown jewel of the city's Jewish quarter, the building is an outstanding example of the Moorish Revival architectural style. A pair of domed turrets tops the central section of the building's tripartite facade, making this one of the most recognizable structures in the city. Visit the upper-floor prayer hall to see an exhibit narrating the history of Prague's Jewish community, and containing thousands of items representing the work of many generations of goldsmiths from Bohemia and Moravia.

  • This is an incredibly historic synagogue in Prague, and certainly worth a visit. We enjoyed seeing it.

  • Probably the most beautiful synagogue you will ever see. Highly decorate and comes with information about the hardships the Jewish people have gone through. You can not buy an individual ticket, only a package to see most of the nearby Jewish synagogues and the old cemetery. It was all worth it.
  • Part of the Jewish Museum of Prague, this is a beautiful building which takes its name from the Moorish decoration inside. It was built in the 1860s on the site of the Old School synagogue, which had likely been the oldest in the city. Left to decline during the Communist period, the synagogue was repaired in the 1990s and reopened in 1998 after a major restoration.
