Spanish Synagogue, Prague

4.5
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.

  • At the entrance side are the monument to Kafka. Come in and remains fascinated by the Golden blaze, salts and remains baffled and saddened when you see the exhibits that refer to how much pain have seen these places

  • We visited the Spanish Synagogue as part of our self-guided tour of the Jewish Quarter in Prague. It was our first stop, and where we bought our ticket to the "Jewish Museum" - which is really just a ticket covering a variety of sites in the Jewish Quarter. The Spanish Synagogue is beautiful inside. Our visit wasn't long, but the building is beautiful, and was a good start to our tour of the area. I think we may have benefited more from seeing the site as part of a tour, as we didn't learn too much of about the specific significance of this particular site, as I don't think having missed this would have had any impact on our visit.
  • Hands down the most beautiful synagogue in Prague. No other really gets close.
  • A fascinating and melancholy place. A beautiful synagogue and museum. A powerful testament to the lost world of the Jews of Prague.
  • This synagogue is very nice with lush wall decoration and it's definitely worth going but they sell only combined tickets at quite high prices paying for other places that we are not interested in. So 5 stars for the Spanish synagogue and 1 start for the ticketing system. 3 stars in average.
  • Can't pay with card here, nor can you buy tickets specifically to see Spanish Synagogue (only inc. on 500 CZK ticket). Nearest cash machine only allows withdrawals of 1000 CZK minimum.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
