Dohány Street Synagogue

The Great Synagogue is located in Belváros, the inner city of Pest. It is the largest Neolog Jewish synagogue in the world and the largest synagogue in Europe. Construction was completed in 1859, and it was enlarged in 1931. It was built in the Moorish style, although the basilica-like ground plan and cloister-like arcade are Christian in style.

Dohány Street Synagogue

The Neolog movement was the Hungarian equivalent of the German Reform movement in Judaism that began in the early 1800s. Reform Judaism never flourished in Europe but became a major branch of Judaism in the United States.
