Synagogue of Kobánya

Synagogue of Kőbánya


Of the outer-suburban synagogues, the one in Cserkesz Street, Kőbánya, deserves special mention.

Based on the design of Richárd Schöntheil, the synagogue was ceremonially opened in 1911. The synagogue has an octagonal inner structure, with a central focus; its eastern façade is decorated with miniature turrets. The synagogue currently functions as a rehabilitation centre for alcoholics and drug patients.
