Jubilee Synagogue (Jubilejni synagóga)

[Jubilee Synagogue - Jubilejni synagóga ]

Named (in English) the "Jubilee Synagogue" in honor of Emperor Franz-Josef's 60th year in power (1908), this is also known as Jeruzalémská synagóga (Jerusalem Synagogue).

The inside is as stunningly pastel-colored as the outside, made in Moorish style with influence of Art Nouveau.
