This is the synagogue with the most interesting name in Prague. As it was built it in the 13th century it was the new and great synagogue, therefore they called it the New Synagogue. Later as they started building newer synagogues it was looked upon as old, and therefore it received the name; Old New Synagogue.

The Old New Synagogue is one of the oldest active synagogues in the world, and the Old New Synagogue is one of Prague’s first gothic buildings.

Franz Kafka attended this synagogue when he lived in Prague and his bar mitzvah was held in the Old New Synagogue.
