Lonely Planet review

This lovely twin-towered Moorish building is the former synagogue, designed in 1881 by the Viennese architect Ludwig Schöne. Today it’s a music school and the attached Béla Bartók Concert Hall . All that remains of the town’s formerly thriving Jewish community is a plaque that marks the spot from where ‘4228 of our Jewish brothers and sisters were deported to Auschwitz on 4 July 1944’.
