Description

Architecturally, it couldn't be simpler and more expressive: a large window on the right side, on the left a small risalit with a small window and a door.

There are 184 seats for men in the lower room and 102 seats for women in the upper gallery.

The supporting structure is reinforced concrete in combination with bricks, the ceilings are supported by steel girders.

It is the only active synagogue not only in Brno, but in all of Moravia and Silesia (Eastern Czechia). In Olomouc and Ostrava exist only small prayer rooms.
