No one was home so we could not get inside. The cafe was also closed. The Synagogue was a bit hard to find as it is across the river from the main city in a very quiet section of the city..

Today the synagogue is not any more a place of worship. But it is very nicely shows the life of the Jews before WW II. And by the way - there are no tourists in mass around!

Some good historical information in foyer about the Jews in the area during Wirkd War Two. Found it interesting to read also to visit a synagogue as often most towns in Europe it's all about the churches.

As are most of the synagogues in the small towns of Europe, this one is no longer a synagogue. It’s a museum. It’s been renovated and apparently completely refurbished, so the building is quite lovely. Unfortunately, there are no Jews left in Karlovy Vary to...More

There are no Jews at the town. The municipality decided to preserve the heritage as part of the town history. Deserve a visit.

The structure is a heavily renovated building that once functioned as a synagogue but is now strictly a museum. One doesn't really get the feeling of how the original structure appeared, but it was good that the building was saved. A very helpful display of...More
