Info text

The oldest Jewish Synagogue in Prague called "Stará Škola" (Old School) or "Templ" (Temple), was replaced in 1868 with the new building of the Spanish Synagogue built according to the architects Ignác Ullmann and Josef Niklas design. The synagogue was built in the Moorish style. The synagogue has a central square layout with a dome above the middle area. From the three sides are built galleries on metal structures that open

onto the main nave. Stucco arabesques and stylized oriental themes form patterns on the walls, they are also present in the decorations of the doors, balustrades and gallery. The synagogue ceased to be used for ritual purposes in 1941 under tragic circumstances. Currently the Spanish Synagogue houses a permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum in Prague entitled History of the Jews from the Emancipation to the present day.
