Krnov Synagogue

The Krnov Synagogue is a synagogue in Krnov (German: Jägerndorf), Czech Republic.

The synagogue, also called the temple, was built in 1871. It is located at 28, Barvířská Street near Soukenická Street (formerly Tempelring, then Tuchmacherring, then Gottwaldova třída). The exterior of the building with twin towers and round-arched windows is in an eclectic, round-arched, Rundbogenstil neo-romantic style; while the interior is Moorish Revival, especially the wooden carved coffered ceiling (painted in reddish brown) and the arcade of the women's galleries. It is one of only three surviving synagogues in the Moravia-Silesia Region (the others are at Nový Jičín and Český Těšín.) [1]
