Spanish Synagogue, Prague: 17 reviews and 25 photos
The newest of the synagouges in Josefov is the Spanish Synagogue. Its worth a look on the exterior alone for its psedo- moorish architecture - reminded me of parts of the Alhambra Palace in Granada. It stands on the site of the Old Synagogue. Didn't go inside ourselves but its exhibits document the history of the Jews from 19th century to present day. Also there are photos of the ghetto before and after its destruction.
I was intrigued by this sculpture just near by - a man sitting on thre shoulders of someone else that is faceless. Have now discovered that this is the Franz Kafka memorial. For loads more info on it visit http://www.jaroslav-rona.cz/pomnik_en.html.
Directions: From Old-Town Square about 5min north-west.
