This is an Art Nouveau masterpiece. It.is undergoing renovation. At the time of our visit (Oct 2016) it was entirety surrounded by scaffolding and the interior was not accessible either. So if you are making a special trip to see it, check first.

Good thing to visit in Szeged. Go in the evening or in the morning, not at the noon. It's in the central part of the city.

The szeged synagogue is a must see place when arriving to szeged. Probably one of the most beautiful synagogue in the whole world. We was very disappointed that it was unpossible to visit since its open only between 9-12.
