The Budapest Great Synagogue (also known as the Central Synagogue or Tabakgasse Synagogue) in Dohány Street was built between 1854 and 1859 with the decoration based chiefly on Islamic models from North Africa and medieval Spain (the Alhambra).
The building is 75 metres (246 ft) long and 27 metres (89 ft) wide. It is the largest synagogue in Europe and the fifth largest in the world and seats 3,000 people.
The style of the Dohány Street Synagogue is Moorish Revival but its design also features a mixture of Byzantine, Romantic and Gothic elements.
Two onion-shaped domes sit on the twin octogonal towers at 43 metres (141 ft) height. A rose stained-glass window sits over the main entrance.
