It matters not what religion you are but this place is marvelous. The building is grand and one can only imagine how marvelous this place was when constructed in 1902. If you appreciate architecture and history this place is a must see

Szeged Synogogue had the most impressive interior. It was the first synogogue I had went inside of and was surprised at the contrast between the spectacular interior and the rather plain looking exterior.

The outside looks impeccable and impressive. Unfortunately, although it was said to be open, the synagogue was locked.

The building has been beautifully renovated but work continues on exterior landscaping and the interior is off-limits currently (as of 8/29/2017). Might be open mid-Sept, and should be worth getting into.

It is a must-see. An amazing building with impressive size. It is currently under refurbishment but still well worth a visit. You can attend concerts here too.
