The High Synagogue was originally linked to the Town Hall

Praha_zidovske mesto

The High Synagogue, which can be found directly opposite the Old-New Synagogue, was built at the same time as the Jewish Town Hall next door by Mordechai Maisel in the second half of the 16th century. The Italian architect Pankrác Roder designed the building.

The High Synagogue was originally linked to the town hall by an entrance on the 1st floor, and served as a meeting place for the Jewish community and representatives of the Jewish Town. However, this entrance was bricked up at the end of the 19th century and a new one created on Červená Street.

The Renaissance building now houses an exhibition of 16th—19th-century synagogue textiles from the Jewish Museum.

Conclusion
The High Synagogue has been through many reconstructions and was several times reconstructed after WW2. It is interesting to know that the original appearance of the Torah case was discovered in the synagogue. Recently, the synagogue has been entirely reconstructed and at present serves its original purpose again. Yet the monument is not opened to the public. The entrance is exclusively possible in case the guide has an appropriate licence. Do call Pražská židovská obec before your visit (Prague Jewish Community) to ask for the permisssion.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
