Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: In 1878, the Jewish community builds, on the bank of Crișul Repede river, a monumental synagogue with 1000 places, dominated by a huge central dome. The project was designed by Busch David in a neo-Moorish style and executed by Rimanoczy Kalman (the father). The interior fresco belongs to the Kosice painter Horovitz Mor. The interior and exterior decorations are of Moorish inspiration.

My father and his family belonged to this Synogogue from the early 30’s to mid 40’s before the war. It’s a must see whether you’re Jewish or not.

A must see at a dirt-cheap price. The synagogue is truly impressive, a place which makes you feel in the presence of deity - and this is coming from an atheist. Anyone visiting Oradea should stop by.

A pleasant experience.
It was a rainy day, I was all alone, I could admire the central area from the second floor in silence. The renovation and refurbishment is well done and the interior is impressive. If you also happen to be alone (or in a small group), make sure to ask a few questions at the entrance. They will most like love to have a small conversation about this place and its uniqueness.
