The Old New Synagogue

1st January 1970

The Old New Synagogue is one of Prague’s longest standing Jewish sites and the oldest active synagogue in Europe. Situated in Josefov, the synagogue is one of Prague’s first Gothic style buildings. The impressive structure, built in 1270, is a major attraction for lovers of architecture. For over 700 years, the Old New Synagogue was Prague’s main synagogue and the primary place of worship for Prague’s Jews. Since it was built, it has been in constant use by the Jewish community, except during WWII.
