  1. Okay, I discovered that the synagogue did survive the war because it was used as a warehouse. Also, is has undergone extensive renovation beginning in 1992. (About the time I was born! No, wait, I was thinking 1902! ;-))

    Have a great day.

  2. Rococó demais, colorida demais, enfeitada demais… não kurti. Mas sem dúvida possui alto valor histórico e religioso. Legal que esteja preservada

  3. What an unusual and interesting collection of colors. I'm guessing the architect had a lot of fun designing this!

  7. It's beautiful and sort of reminds me of the one in Berlin though it's actually different. I can't remember this one in Prague, I must have missed it, I was in a rush, flying back to Paris.

  8. What a marvelous place! Love the Moorish-modernist architecture! Reminds me a lot actually of our own Palau de la Musica, same style, same period.

  9. Fabulous! I was in Prague three or four years ago, but I don't remember this one. I think it would have made an impression.
