This synagogue is certainly one of the most distinctive and original looking buildings in the city. It is built in a Neo-Moorish style and was designed by a well-known Hungarian architect. It has a square plan with an immense high central dome. Inside literally every square inch is decorated with carvings and paintings.
Due to the Second World War, the majority of the Jews left the country. The decline in visitors continued at the end of the communist period. Eventually, it closed down in the eighties. In the upcoming decades, the synagogue has been vandalized and looted. Since it also hasn't been maintained after its closure the condition of the synagogue changed to an advanced stage of degradation.
