Sopron, Old Synagogue

The former synagogue is in the yard of two late medieval buildings in the downtown. The first written records about the Jewish in Sopron are from the 13th century. The early Gothic synagogue, which was built around 1300 and was unique in Central Europe, could not – in accordance with the then specifications – be erected on the street line therefore there is yard at its front. The building remained only in pieces but its former layout could be reconstructed. There is an exhibition in the building. "Forgotten people from Sopron".
