Stop At: Coral Temple

The Choral Temple is a synagogue located in Bucharest. It is a copy of Vienna’s Leopoldstadt-Tempelgasse Great Synagogue. The synagogue was devastated by the far-right Legionaries/Nazis, but was then restored after World War II, in 1945. It still hosts daily religious services in the small hall, being one of the few active synagogues in the city and in Romania.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Museum of History of the Jewish Community

The amazing Holy Union Temple synagogue was constructed in 1836, this building has served as a museum of Jewish history since 1978. A number of separate exhibitions display how the once vibrant Jewish community of Bucharest used to live, while there is also an impressive Jewish liturgical collection, most of which was assembled by Moses Rosen, Romania's chief rabbi from 1964-94 who founded the museum.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Holocaust Memorial

Unveiled in October 2009, Romania's Holocaust Memorial finally recognises the country's role in the genocide of Europe's Jews. As the Wiesel Report - commissioned by the Romanian government to investigate the Holocaust in Romania - concluded, no country outside Germany was responsible for the deaths of more Jews than Romania. The memorial itself comprises a column on which each side is written a single Hebrew letter. Taken together they read zachor (remember). There is also a hall of remembrance, and a number of plaques containing the names of many Romanian Holocaust victims.
