New Synagogue in Szeged is a monumental building that already impresses visitors with its dimensions. It is 48.5 meters high and can accommodate 1340 people. The synagogue was designed by the Budapest architect Lipót Baumhorn, author of 22 synagogues in Hungary. Szeged synagogue was built in 1903 and belongs to the Moorish version of Art Nouveau, at the time popular among Synagogue builders and architects in Europe.

The most beautiful part of the Synagogue’s interior is the dome, symbolizing the world. The infinity of the world is represented by a large number of stars scattered throughout the cobalt-blue glass dome, which darkens gradually towards the top. The dome itself rests on 24 pillars, symbolizing the 24 hours in a day.
