The Great Synagogue in Bucharest , Romania was raised in 1845 by the Polish-Jewish community. It was repaired in 1865, redesigned in 1903 and 1909, repainted in Roccoco style in 1936 by Ghershon Horowitz, then it was restored again in 1945, as it had been devastated by the extreme right Legionaries. It nowadays hosts an exhibition entitled The Memorial of Jewish Martyrs Chief Rabbi Dr. Mozes Rosen. During the late 1980s, just like many churches in the area, this synagogue was virtually surrounded by concrete buildings, so as to hide it from public sight.

The Coral Temple – One of the few working Jewish buildings left in Bucharest. Built in 1857, the red brick temple still serves the now tiny Jewish community of Bucharest, and has a memorial at the front (visible from the street) that commemorates the Romanian Jews sent to their deaths during the Holocaust.It was inspired by Leopoldstdter Tempel in Vienna.
