Reviewed 18 March 2018

This is a MUST for visiting Szeged. The Synagogue has beautiful architecture and is photogenic from all sides. The inside is dazzling with blue and gold everywhere. The motifs are easily recognizable scenes from the Torah and Pentateuch. I could have sat and stared at the inside of the building all day.

PRO TIP: The hours are from 10am-3pm daily, BUT the website specifies that from October to April the attendant might not be there the whole time. There should be a mobile phone number posted if the attendant is away. You can call and he/she will come and open the doors for you.

You can also request a tour in Hungarian or English, but you must arrange it ahead of time. We attempted to do this, but emailed at the last minute and were unable to make it work. I recommend emailing or calling the week before your visit.

The outside looks impeccable and impressive. Unfortunately, although it was said to be open, the synagogue was locked.

While in Szeged we had the opportunity to visit this Synagogue. The place is beautifully appointed lots of marble and stained glass. We were told that in its heydays this would seat some 1000 people. This definitely true because this place is huge. Well worth a visit.

The building has been beautifully renovated but work continues on exterior landscaping and the interior is off-limits currently (as of 8/29/2017). Might be open mid-Sept, and should be worth getting into.

It is a must-see. An amazing building with impressive size. It is currently under refurbishment but still well worth a visit. You can attend concerts here too.
