Synagogue - Museum of Jewish Culture

Description

The Prešov Jewish Museum was founded in 1928 as the first of its kind in Slovakia. It is located in the beautiful premises of an orthodox synagogue built between 1897 - 1898. The exterior of the building has smooth facades, divided by slender windows. The interior is imposing, decorated with rich Oriental-style murals.

The synagogue is currently used as a house of prayer, but is also open to the public. In addition to the Ark, which is used for storing Torah scrolls or a high place with a worship table used to read the Torah, visitors can also view the permanent exhibition of Bárkany's collection of Judaica - an exhibition of the Museum of Jewish Culture.
