Edirne Things to Do: 51 reviews and 155 photos


The once great Great Synagogue isn't any more. Built in 1906 it was not only the biggest synagogue in Turkey but also the whole of the Balkans. it is said to have collapsed through neglect and not foul play some 20 years ago. It used to be located in the Jewish part of town under the Ottomans but the Jewish population has since emigrated to Israel. If you walk north along the street it?s on, you'll pass by some nice wooden houses.
