Great Synagogue

Northern Hungary

The 19th-century Eclectic Great Synagogue, which was used as a German barracks during WWII, is once again gleaming after a total reconstruction. It is now used as a conference and cultural centre; seek entry via the Ede Paulay Theatre.

There's also a large Orthodox Jewish cemetery in Bodrogkresztúr, 6km northwest of Tokaj.
