Another nice looking building, Hungary seems to be full of them. Many buildings outside of Budapest need some money spent on them so hopefully soon they will look much better.

Maybe it’s not the most beautiful one of the Hungarian Synagogues, but it has a unique and diverse history. I like the Friday’s service. The jewish community is a very convergent posse.

Pecs synagogue is really interesting on a couple of levels. The building in worth a visit on its own merits and then another level is the history of the local Jewish community in the 19th century and the tragic 20th century history.
