Dohány Street Synagogue

Year Built: 1859

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Architect: Ludwig Förster

The Dohány Street Synagogue takes some of our favorite parts of mosque architecture and art and brings it to a place of Jewish worship. We have onion domes, striped stonework, and and amazingly intricate detail work on almost every surface imaginable. Förster's interior stuns the faithful with drama—dramatic color, dramatic patterns, and perhaps most striking, the dramatic arches holding up the building.
