Another of Subotica’s Art Nouveau treasures is the city’s synagogue, finished in 1903 and also drawn up by Dezső Jakab and Marcell Komor.
It’s a synagogue that resembles no other, partly because there’s a state-of-the-art steel frame in its walls. This gave the architects the freedom to create a self-supporting dome, painted with gold. The carnations, peacock feathers and tulip motifs that show up here and there are all traits of the Hungarian Art Nouveau.
If you’d like to arrange a tour of the interior you can ask at the tourist office in Subotica’s city hall.
