The synagoge in Oradea is no longer in use and has a very unkept look. Somewhere in the past decades the use of this synagoge was abolished and the current state it is in is so bad it isn't even open anymore. Very unfortunate since it looks like a very intriguing building.
And while all churches are renovated, this synagoge isn't high on the list of buildings to keep. So it looks a bit forlorn alongside the river
When you want to visit this synagoge you can do so daily between 11-13 and 14-17. There is an old man who will let you in to see it. When i went to see this synagoge i wanted to see if there was some sort of back entrance. So i followed the row of houses that is build next to the synagoge. And from the corner of my eye i thought i saw a car parked inside the house.. so i checked again.. and yes, more then one. Behind the facade of several normal looking houses was a car dealers shop..
