The Rijeka synagogue is the successor of the hospitable facility from 1903 which disappeared in the Second World War. Although it is located just a few hundred metres from the one that disappeared, the synagogue that is today used by the city’s Jewish community greeted the end of the war without being damaged. It was built in 1932 as smaller facility with an unexpected architectonic appearance. Today it is the only temple of its kind in Croatia from the modernism period. It was designed by architects Vittorio Angyal and Pietro Fabbro. The lines of the building are simple, of clear modernistic spirit with elements of Mediterranean influence and associations to Art Deco details. In 2008 the synagogue’s reconstruction was terminated during which the building received its initial appearance again. Besides other things, its two altars and oath chest were restored. The Rijeka synagogue is the only facility constructed with the purpose of its kind in Croatia and still operates in its original ritual function.

This Synagogue is part of Rijeka multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-religion Heritage, as a number of different nationals lived once and formed lively and colourfull picture of old Rijeka. Now minor number of Jews lives in Rijeka, this building now have more historical value than cultural display to see

The original and main city synagogue was located at Pomerio (close to this building). It was completed in 1903 and destroyed by Nazis in 1944. The new building is just a small memento to the Jewish community which settled in the city coming from the Italian coast in the 15th century.

This unassuming synagogue, serving as the center of the Jewish congregation, was able to survive the Holocaust as well as subsequent period of communism due to its purposefully subdued exterior. The more attention grabbing great conservative Synagogue in the Corso, in comparison, was torn down by the Nazi occupation. Here you may find a display of the history of Jews... More
