The first Jews settled in Brasov at the very beginning of the 19th century. About one century later (1901) the Synagogue (Sinagoga) was opened.

The Neo-Roman/Moorish style building was designed by architect Leopold Baumhorn.

Nowadays there are only about 230 Jews living in Brasov, whereas in 1940 Brasov's Jewish community consisted of about 4000 members.

Directions:
The Synagogue is located in a backyard at the Poarta Schei street, which can be found just southwest of the Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului).

Address: Synagogue, Str. Poarta Schei 27, Brasov
