Choral Synagogue of Grodno is one of the oldest in Europe. The first building on this site was built in the XVI century by the Italian architect Santi Gucci, but it burned down in the early XVII. At the same place was built a wooden synagogue, which, again, was destroyed by fire three centuries later. As a result, a synagogue in the Moorish style was built on the project of Ivan Frunkin at the beginning of the XX century. New building have included the remains of the chapel of the XVI century.

The building of great beauty, is a symbiosis of Italian style with others. There a sanctuary In the center which is decorated with unique figures. Synagogue enjoyed great popularity among parishioners.

During World War II the synagogue was looted and its walls are very affected from weapons.

In the postwar period nobody cared about building, it was not repaired, and used as a warehouse, and then as art workshops. In 1991, the government passed it into the possession of religious community in Grodno, and again the Jews started reconstruction on their own, which continues today.

While it's being renovated, the synagogue services are held daily, as well as classes and meetings.

Synagogue is interesting to tourists not only from Belarus, but also from around the world. It also houses the Jewish Museum.

Думаю, сколько финансов имеется у относящихся к данной религии, синагога могла выглядеть достойнее! А так проезжая мимо, думаю, вы и не поймёте что это архитектурная и историческая синагога!
