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.

  • Pleased I read the reviews here about not buying the audio guides. Very forceful and rude lady on the til, trying to upsell the audio guide. It was a very moving and informative experience. Don't miss out, and audio guides are not necessary as there's plenty of signage. Would have been 5 stars if not for the poor customer service.
  • This is a historic place and it is not coincidence that in the Jewish part of town is one of the most expensive streets in Prague since true history Jewish people were the ones that had a lot of money. I think that the fee actually the ticket you bye to visit Jewish community buildings is overpriced because it’s more than €15 per person and that it’s not worth that amount of money. The Spanish synagogue is by my opinion the most beautiful out of all synagogues that are in Jewish community in Prague.
