About the place
From the long Jewish history of our town, two important architectural monuments have survived to this day, namely the synagogue and the cemetery. When the older synagogue from 1697 was not sufficient for the growing space requirements of the community in the second half of the 19th century, it was replaced in 1868 by a new temple built at the expense of the Jewish mayor David Kuffner. Twenty years later it was renovated by the prominent Viennese architect Max Fleischer in the Neo-Romanesque style, using Moorish elements in the interior. The synagogue was used for religious purposes until the beginning of the occupation, then for half a century it was used as a storage space. After a complete renovation in 1997-1999, it serves as a permanent exhibition, concert hall and venue for social events.
