Kisvárda syanagogue – virtual tour

How to use the virtual tour?

Welcome to the synagogue in Kisvárda!
The first Jewish religious community was founded in Kisvárda, which currently has around 16-17 thousand inhabitants, in 1796. Kisvárda had 4,703 inhabitants in 1871, of which 1,824 were Roman Catholics, 1,328 Jews, 1,166 Lutherans, 384 Greek Catholics and one Unitarian. The data show how quickly the number of Jews grew in 100 years. The significant number of people justified the construction of a new synagogue: the synagogue that still stands today was built in 1901-1902, designed by the architect Ferenc Grósz. During the Second World War, about 7,000 Jews lived in the city, 90 percent of them were killed in the Holocaust.
To walk through a tour, you will have to click through the highlighted spots, from which texts and pictures will pop up. The spots come in a linear, thematic sequence. On the opening page of each virtual walk there is a chart on which you can look up the spaces to be visited. To get a better experience, we recommend that you use a tablet or a laptop or desktop computer, rather than a smartphone.
We hope you will enjoy exploring!
