Description
Completed in 1270 in gothic style, the Old New Synagogue is the oldest active synagogue in Europe. It is also linked to a number of legends, including those related to the Temple of Jerusalem and the Golem. During Nazi occupation, the synagogue was used as a house prayer and was left untouched, as the Nazis had planned to remodel and turn it into a museum.
