This was a reform synagogue which had a very short lifespan because the Germans and their Czech collaborators killed approximately 263,000 Jews who had resided on the territory of the Czechoslovak Republic at the outset of the Holocaust. The synagogue now functions as an art...More

This building is across the river, away from the historic centre of Cesky Krumlov. It is not usually open, but you are supposed to be able to get the key from the adjacent cafe, when it is open. This part of the town is not...More

The synagogue is located outside of the town center on the other side of the river. We walked to it one day but it was not open and so we just walked around it. Not really worth going to in my opinion,

No one was home so we could not get inside. The cafe was also closed. The Synagogue was a bit hard to find as it is across the river from the main city in a very quiet section of the city..

Following our long-standing tradition of visiting the historical remains of the lost Jewish communities of Europe, we naturally sought out this gem of a restored synagogue, located off the beaten path at the top of Latran Street. Built in 1908 with the generous assistance of...More

Today the synagogue is not any more a place of worship. But it is very nicely shows the life of the Jews before WW II. And by the way - there are no tourists in mass around!

... there are reasons to stop by. First, it's off the main tourist path, so you'll leave some of the crush behind you and see fewer folks with selfie-sticks. Second, the building has been nicely restored. Third, for a time at the end of WWII...More

As are most of the synagogues in the small towns of Europe, this one is no longer a synagogue. It’s a museum. It’s been renovated and apparently completely refurbished, so the building is quite lovely. Unfortunately, there are no Jews left in Karlovy Vary to...More

Unable to find the hours for the Synagogue at Cesky Krumlov. However, if the Cafe within the building is open, they might assist you. Do keep in mind that Saturdays (Sabbath) are holy days as per Jewish tradition. Tours... More
