Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restored synagogue, now a museum, sits in the heart of the now silent and deserted Jewish quarter in Presov. This was the epicenter and starting point of the roundup of Slovakia's Jewish population in World War II. It is impossible not to deeply feel that when visiting the site. The building is beautiful, with good display cases and a strong sense of history to tell. There isn't much interpretation in English, but do your homework before you go. Strongly recommend.

Beautiful Moorish-style building, nicely maintained, with Jewish museum in upper gallery. Memorial in grounds to the many Jews of Presov who were deported to the Nazi death camps in WWII. There are often excellent chamber music concerts.

One of the most beautiful old synagogues that I have ever seen is here in Presov. It is in relative good condition. There is an old Jewish man that lives in Presov that opened the synagogue for us to show us around. Colorful paintings on the walls and ceilings were spectacular. And the feel of another time permeates the building. Yes, it is off the beaten track, but if you are in the area, this syngogue should not be missed.

The outside of the synagogue doesn't look like much, but the inside is lovely. A great collection, displayed really really well.
The open hours are quite limited, something like 11-3 a few days a week.

The staff was helpful b/c I was there to try to find the gravesites of my great grandparents and any other relatives. W/a deposit, I received the keys to the cemetary and went on a search. Afterwards, had a tour of the synagogue. It's wonderful that it was able to be preserved after what the Nazi's did. The tour wasn't in English, but I walked around looking at everything. It's sad that originally there were 6,000 Jewish people there and now it's down to 50.

I've been to this synagogue a long time ago and it was still a less touristic place then, however, I enjoy its original form and warm welcome by an attendant.

In the Jewish religious community in Presov, visitors can see not only the synagogue itself, but also a permanent exhibition Bárkányho collection of Judaica, which is located on the first floor and administrative point of Slovak National Museum, Department of Jewish Culture in Bratislava. The collection also contains articles of original contemporary Jewish Museum, which was founded in Presov in 1928. I love this place.

a building very close to the city center, almost unnoticeable with rather simple exterior but hides breathtaking, rich hand-painted decorations in a moorish style, similar to spanish synagogue in prague. one look at the pics and we were convinced for a visit!

on the second floor - women’s gallery - there is a museum of jewish artefacts from the daily life of the community and about the history of the local jews. open:

Tuesday-Wednesday: 11:00–15:00
Thursday: 09:00–13:00
Friday: 09:00–13:00
Sunday: 14:00–16:00

with 2 euro fee, plus 3 euro for a camera.
