Sofia Synagogue information
Sofia’s Moorish-style synagogue was designed by Austrian architect Friedrich Gruenanger, and was consecrated in 1909. Built to accommodate up to 1170 worshippers, it is the second-largest Sephardic synagogue in Europe, and its 2250kg brass chandelier is the biggest in Bulgaria. There's a small museum on the 2nd floor with an exhibition dedicated to the rescue of Bulgarian Jews during WWII.
