Highlights

* Attend a concert at the magnificent Spanish Synagogue in Prague.
* Don’t miss the most famous melodies of world classical music against a unique historical backdrop.

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 Arabesque patterns, and the large hall, glittering with gold, adds a fairy-tale atmosphere to a concert.

The Hallelujah concert takes you on a trip back in time: from the most famous melodies in the classical repertoire to catchy modern numbers. The programme also includes traditional Jewish songs, both those played at celebrations as well as pieces full of emotion.
