Grand Choral Synagogue

Year Built: 1893

Location: St. Petersburg, Russia

ArchitectA.V. Malov

The Grand Choral Synagogue fits right in with the colorful architecture of St. Petersburg. Moorish architecture abounds in Malov's design, with a large pointed archway denoting the entrance, striped stonework claddingt the building, and minaret-like towers, while the blue and white spiral dome adds an unexpected bit of color while keeping it in line with the other buildings in St. Petersburg.
