Symmetry in the SynaPrague



Welcome to the Syna-Prague... please see this in LARGE!!


As we head into one of the last weekends of the summer let me take you inside The Jerusalem Synagogue (A.K.A. The Jubilee Synagogue) to take a quick peak inside.


This is the largest and youngest Synagogue in Prague Czech Republic and is located in the New Town right near the Main Railway Station. I just happened upon this beauty as I was hurrying to the station. So I went and dropped all our heavy bags off at the train station and I ran back to go inside and snap off a few photos, before we headed to Český Krumlov. I am sure glad I did. It was near empty inside and as you can see quite remarkable. The colours where just incredible throughout this architectural masterpiece.


The Synagogue was built in 1906 and is a blend of Moorish Revival and Art Nouveau styles. I was lucky enough to go when I did because only as of April 1, 2008 was the Synagogue open to tourists on a regular basis.


++ I hope y'all have a funtastic weekend and remember to be safe... I'll be here praying for ya! ;-) ++
