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.

  • Probably the most beautiful synagogue around. Not to be missed. Part of the Jewish multi purpose ticket.

  • Walked past this place yesterday. Beautiful exterior but no way was I going to shell out 500 CZK (€20) for a combo ticket I didn’t want. It’s not possible to purchase a ticket for just this one site.....  more

  • 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.
  • Must see! Not only is it beautiful but the history you learn as you go through is great. If you do the Jewish museum tour and don't have time to see all the synagogues, don't miss this one. Even if you're not doing the Jewish museum tour, don't miss this synagogue. I wish I could post a picture but they weren't allowed
