The Grand Choral Synagogue of St. Petersburg is the second largest of its kind in the continent of Europe. Consecrated in 1893, the synagogue was completed in 1888 and has hence garnered international acclaim because of its lavish design.
Built in a time of turmoil for the people of Jewish faith in Europe, this synagogue bears testimony to the changing times that were experienced in those periods. The architecture is predominantly Moorish with some Byzantine influences and is today considered as a national landmark.

This is a beautiful synagogue with real character, both inside and out. Our tour guide was extremely pleasant and gave us the history of the building and explained how it is used today. The colors inside are especially vibrant, with some stunning shades of blue, and the ceiling beneath the dome has a gorgeous design.
This is one of the most beautiful synagogues of st Petersburg ,was rebuilt and brought back to its original beauty, this is a place to see because of it’s history and beauty also they have a very good mini shop with Sacramental wine and a very nice selection of Jewish articles, the only thing is that there’s no parking lot in the synagogue but if you’re in a public transportation is very easy to get there.
This is a very nice building and a community hub with a distinct character, which you won't miss even from the outside. It was recently cleaned and restored to it's former glory with some improvements, such as powerful murals on the internal sidewalk wall and new yet tasteful decoration of public areas inside. Irrelevant to someone's religious beliefs, this place is a suprisinly interesting spot to visit in the city of St. Petersburg to learn more about the history, character and spirit of this megapolis. If you will have a time, I would suggest you to have an insightful talk with some of the locals.
Marvelous synagogue in the city, the design, colors and architecture stands out to be among the most beautiful buildings in the city. Stunning from the outside to the inside. Definitely should be a more recognize landmark here, I strongly recommend visiting it.
