Main description

The Spanish Synagogue lies in the heart of Prague’s Jewish Quarter and is noted for its unique architecture, which blends Arabian and Andalusian influences. The whole building is profusely decorated with arabesques, and the large hall, glittering with gold, adds a fairy-tale atmosphere to a concert.

At the Bolero concert you’ll hear the most famous works of Ravel, Rossini, Verdi and others. Accompanying the orchestra is soprano Michaela Šrůmová, whose passion and outstanding interpretation of Carmina Burana will capture your heart. The second half of the concert features well-known mournful Jewish songs that will take your breath away.
