JEWISH HERITAGE IN TRNAVA

Drive to Trnava town and a city tour with a visit to a synagogue. The synagogue as it stands was built in 1891 according to the plans of the Viennese architect Jakub Gartner.

The building with a striking two-tower façade serves following its partial reconstruction for the needs of the Ján Koniarik Gallery. The exhibition of the Museum of Jewish Culture is installed in the women’s gallery. Following the end of the Second World War, a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust was placed in front of the synagogue, built according to a design by the architect Artur Szalatnai-Slatinský.

Day 4

TRENCIN & BARDEJOV

Start with a city tour & castle visit. The Trenčín synagogue belongs to the most exquisite and interesting works of its type in Slovakia. It was built close to an earlier synagogue. In 1913, a Trenčín construction firm, Fuchs and Niegreisz, based on the blueprints of a Berlin architect Dr. Richard Scheibner, carried out the construction.

Transfer to Liptovsky Mikulas town, city tour, and synagogue visit. Synagogue was built in 1842–46 and it assumed its present form after extensive reconstruction in 1906 under the project of architect Lipót Baumhorn from Budapest. The reconstruction resulted in an interesting combination of original classicistic exterior and lavishly decorated secession interior. It does not fulfill its original purposes anymore. Lunch break.

The Orthodox synagogue, built in 1898 by the building firm Kollacsek and Wirth, is a three-story building without towers.

    Dear Jane and Peter, Our Slovakian heritage tour was amazing- beyond our greatest expectations. And we thank you for this. Everything worked out perfectly. The guides, Martin and Patrick went all out to help us connect with the locals and find what we were looking for, and at our own pace. We found and saw all that we wanted We found the house where the family hid in Motycky during the war , were greeted by the mayor, and were able to thank the villagers in perpetuity for saving lives. In Nove Zamky, we also found the house the family lived in for 5 yrs post war, and with Patrick’s help, the family now living there, let us in and showed us warm hospitality . Our return through Budapest, the Dohany Street synagogue was wonderful an important final excursion. Martin gave us a great tour of the palace and castle in Buda We owe you and Jane a huge thank you for all your help. You are expert travel agents and i am so glad that we could see and experience the absolute beauty of of the slovak landscape and we would be so happy to highly recommend you to anyone looking to travel here. Be well Bonnie
