The still functioning New Synagogue Szeged is one of the centers of the local Jewish community. It is located in the southern part of Hungary , in the Dél-Alföld region, in Szeged , a city also known as "The City of the Sun". This historic building is opened throughout the year, and hosts exhibitions and concerts. The building is surrounded by a beautiful, protected monumental park, which is the same age as the synagogue.


The New Synagogue Szeged and the community seat was designed by Lipót Baumhorn on the basis of a project from 1897. The synagogue has 1340 seats. The construction works began in August 1900, and finished in October 1902. The style of the monumental 48,5 m tall building was influenced by the Moorish-Secession and the Byzantine styles. Inside, the ribbed decoration above the organ shows Gothic influences, while the pillars reminds us of the Romanesque style. Immánuel Lőw the chief rabbi had an important role in the decoration of the interior of the synagogue. He was giving advice to the architect, as far as the decoration of the altarpiece, the walls and the windows were concerned. The organ was built by the famous Lipót C. Wegenstein.


The synagogue can be visited all year through. There is a guide who helps the visitors to discover all its riches and beauties.
