This is one of the finest examples of Art Nouveau religious architecture in Central Europe.
Designed by Hungarian architects Marcell Komor and Dezsö Jakab and built in 1902, the Synagogue of Subotic combines a modern concrete and steel structure with traditional decorative elements from Hungarian Folk Art.
Once the spiritual home of the large Jewish community in the region, the synagogue has been neglected since World War II.
Despite the restoration works undertaken in recent decades, the building remains highly endangered. International expertise and solidarity are needed to save this architectural and cultural gem.
