Don't think you'll see anything like it anywhere, least of all in Spain. A beautiful place we got to visit on our guided tour of the Jewish Quarter- a must-do in Prague.
This Synagogue can be visited as a stand alone. It is very ornate , lovely light through the windows and beautiful decoration in , as suggested by its name, in Spanish style. The small museum (only one room) is also a good reason to visit. The displays upstairs includes pictures by children from the Terezin ghetto. A place to reflect... More
Amongst all other synagogues in Prague, the spanish synagogue is by fat the nicest. Very well laid out exposition describing the life of the jews in those times. One can again realize how the jews where persecuted during those years and then even more wonder how some head of states can deny the holocaust
The Spanish synagogue is a beautiful place to visit. I recommend visiting only this site (for 70kc), and not the whole Jewish museum which is around 320kc. The interior of this building is beautiful and there are small exhibitions inside from the Jewish era in Prague history. One cons: you cannot take photos inside, UNLESS you pay additional 40kc.

My wife and I entered the Synagogue and felt the awe the place gives you. We were very moved by the historical artifacts and journals displayed along the walls. What struck us the most is the Jewish history during the Holocaust and the Anti-Semitic acts they suffered. We recommend the visit as it gives you special perspective on life.
We had a lovely time visiting the Spanish Synagogue followed by dinner at the Kolkovne Czech restaurant across the street. The food, beer and service is very good. And the whole neighborhood has a remarkable mix of ancient and Art Nouveau architecture. Very pleasant to explore. The Spanish Synagogue would be an amazing venue to hear a Gershwin concert but...

When we were there we saw a sign that they were having a string quartet concert that evening. We arrived 15 minutes before the concert and purchased the tickets at the stand outside the building. The acoustics were amazing, and hearing... More
This was our first stop when visiting various synagogues in the city. Thankfully as it was the first we hadn't become overwhelmed by the amount of information on offer. The interior is fascinating and has a resemblance to the Alhambra. The museum/exhibition on the first floor is very interesting, well laid out and offers you a fairly comprehensive insight into...

The Spanish Synagogue is part of the Jewish Quarter tour. One ticket gets you into several old synagogues and the very interesting cemetery. Next to it is the traditional Kolkovna restaurant with its selection of heavy Central European food, but quite good; on the same corner is the even better Nostress Cafe with wonderful light 'nouvelle' cuisine; no smoking, easy...
