The neologic synagogue was built between 1924 – 1925 according to the plans of the architect Leopold (Lipót) Baumhorn, who had designed and rebuilt 22 synagogues in the territory of the former Kingdom of Hungary. In his architectural designs he preferred pompous oriental principle. The synagogue was handed over to the Jewish Religious Community during the ceremony on 8th September 1925. It was among the largest synagogues in Slovakia having the capacity of 1,042 places. Until 1944 the synagogue had served for its original purpose – religious ceremonies of the Jewish community. Its dominating structure is a monumental dome. It was reconstructed from 1st June 2015 to 31st December 2015. The reconstruction focused on construction and handicraft works. The synagogue has become a multicultural space after the reconstruction. It is a national cultural monument and is included in the Slovak Jewish Heritage Route.
