The musical events in the Spanish Synagogue are highly praised in the field of chamber classical concerts in Prague. 

Spanish Synagogue in Prague is one of the most beautiful synagogues in Europe. The synagogue got its name from the Moorish style, in which it was in 1868 built on the site of the original synagogue – so called Altschul - from the 12th century.
Exotic style, inspired by famous Alhambra, emphasized the reformist character of the new synagogue, which belonged to German-speaking reform Jews. The building was designed by Josef Niklas and Jan Belsky, the remarkable interior by Antonin Baum and Bedrich Münzberger.
Frantisek Skroup, the composer of the Czech national anthem, served as organist here in 1836-45 (i. e. still in Altshul).
The synagogue now belongs to the Prague´s Jewish Museum, it houses part of the exhibition, and popular concerts of classical and sacred music often take place here.

Please note:

In the Spanish Synagogue you will find pews, therefore all concerts are open seating concerts. Your ticket always guarantee the place to sit. In case you wish to choose comfortably the place you want to sit, we advise to our clients to come at least 20 minutes before the beginnig of the concert.
