The Jewish Suburbia is the unique nineteenth century urban complex which consists of a synagogue, ritual baths (Mikvah), an assembly hall (Beit Midrash) and adjacent facilities including a kosher abattoir. In the past, the Jews were forbidden to inhabit royal towns such as Bardejov and thus the suburbia is located outside of the town’s walls.

The Jewish Suburbia was registered into UNESCO World Heritage in 2000, together with the historical core of Bardejov. The multitude of ethnicities contributed to the sophisticated period urban culture and as such the suburbia is an inseparable part of the UNESCO registration.

A unique holocaust memorial was introduced in 2014 near the area of the complex. It contains names of more than 3000 victims, arrayed according to their respective families. The memorial garden serves as a symbol for the final rest of Bardejov’s Jews as well as for conciliation of town’s inhabitants with their own past.
