Right on the street that leads up to the Zoo and Pastyrska stena is the Synagogue. It was built 1906-07 in pseudo-oriental style with obvious elements of Czech Art Nouveau (Secession). It is the only Synagogue in the Czech Sudeten region (where until 1945 a German majority lived) which survived WWII.

Since 1996 the Jewish community is again owner of the property. It is nowadays used as exhibit and congress centre - not for services anymore, sadly.

Open daily on workdays from 8-15 h. Small charge if they have an exhibit.

Address: Zizkova 4, Decin IV (Podmokly)
