Szeged

SZEGED

The synagogue in Szeged, southern Hungary.

The Szeged synagogue was designed by Lipot Baumhorn in 1897 and was built between 1900-1902. It is 48,5 meters high and as a child of the very short, but prosperous Hungarian Art Noveau period it reflects the Moorish, Byzantine, Baroque, Gothic and Romanesque architectural heritage. The inner dome is the symbol of the world. The glass dome and the windows are work of Miksa Roth and present the moments of the most important Jewish holidays and religious ceremonies.
The Szeged synagogue is still active and besides the services it is home to concerts and festivals as well.
