Rumbach Street Synagogue

Rumbach Street Synagogue

The “status-quo” synagogue in Rumbach Street was built in 1872, to the design of the Viennese architect, Otto Wagner; it is the only building in Hungary to be designed by him. Built in the Romantic style, the synagogue evidences a strong eastern influence; its two towers remind one of the minarets so characteristic of Islamic architecture.

The façade of the synagogue fronting the street consists of three sections. Behind the street-front building is the centrally focused, octagonal, domed structure of the synagogue.
