History of the Great Synagogue
Plzen's Great Synagogue was built in 1892 when the Jewish community in the city numbered as many as 2,000. It now numbers only in the hundreds.
What to See at the Great Synagogue
A painstaking restoration project has brought back the pink-hued, Moorish-style synagogue's beauty and is well worth visiting.
