Very impressive experience

The synagogue is a place that I can definitely recommend to visit. It is a beautiful spiritual place where one can learn interesting facts about the history of the Jews in Mikulov.

Just saw it outside

Just saw the synagogue outside. Located close to the castle. Founded by Jewish society to memorize Jews who lived in Czech.
Nice that we care about our history.

"Highlight of our opportunistic Mikulov visit..."
Sep 2017 • Couples
As Israelis, we naturally seek out lost Jewish communities throughout our extensive travels through Europe and were thus pleasantly surprised to discover Mikulov to be one such prominent center of Jewish influence and learning, dating back to the mid-1500s, when the town was called Nikolsburg, all the way through to the 19th century.
The town was the political, religious and cultural center of south Moravia and in its heyday, up to 50% of the population was Jewish. The prominent and famed Rabbi Loew held sway - tradition has it that he created the mythical "Golem" - a spirit monster - apocryphal in Czech Jewish folklore.
The somewhat unimposing synagogue on Husova Street, in the shadow of the Zamek, or Castle, upon examination turned out to be one of the most beautifully restored places of prayer we had yet visited. While the facility has long been without a resident community, the synagogue, together with the Mikve - ritual bath-house - and the large and well-maintained cemetery, have been beautifully restored for posterity, with the sanctuary of the modestly proportioned synagogue a shining example of the post-humous respect displayed this community, destroyed completely by the Nazis in the 'forties. From the revitalized texts on the high ceilings, to the magnificent four-pillared, gilded cupola gracing the center of the sanctuary, behind the cantor's lectern and the impressive Ark, facing Jerusalem, which would have preserved the sacred Torah scrolls in normal times - this is truly a wonderful, if sad memory of what once was a vital part of Mikulov's history.
Despite his lack of English, we were able to receive sufficient information from the custodian, including descriptive material, so no complaints here...
To end on a whimsical note, the extinct rabbi's residence opposite the synagogue, now a restaurant, is called "The Golem" !

Only Surviving Synagogue in Mikulov
Jul 2017 • Friends
Once a thriving town on the Czech/Austrian border, there is one remaining Synagogue in what was once a town that was 50% Jewish.

Fairly plain on the outside, the inside was beautifully restored and now is the Jewish Museum in the town. It is an interesting but sad reminder of a once thriving community eradicated by the Nazis. Outside is a moving statue / memorial of what once was and what happened.

Worth to visit once in Mikulov
Nov 2016 • Couples
Interestingly enough, it is open on Shabbatm so you can make it even if you only have a weekend in Mikulov. Nicely renovated small synagogue, with an exhibition commemorating the rich Jewish past of the city.

Important to remember those who prayed here.
Sep 2016 • Couples
Had a nice visit to the synagogue- handful of people there at the same time. Good restoration work. The exhibits could have used some labels in English. Don't expect the cashier to speak English either- he didn't! Important for Czechs, Austrians and other visitors to remember those who once lived and prayed here.
