"Great Synagogue" Great Synagogue - Central Synagogue Tip by Lena1979

This synagogue built in Byzantine-Moorish style is largest in Europe. We entered synagogue and were amazed to see a lot of ornaments and decorations inside. It is so different from synagogues in Israel with their modesty of interior.

The price of admission includes entry to synagogue and the Jewish museum where Jewish related items from the Roman period to the present day are assembled. If you want to take pictures in synagogue, you are expected to give some donation.
