Dohany Street synagogue in Budapest is the largest in Europe.

At the time it was started (1854) around 900,00 Jews lived in Hungary. Enjoying more or less equal rights, they were keen to integrate.

The synagogue they built looks like a Christian church with front-facing wooden pews, an organ and two pulpits. The side windows use a six-point star pattern in yellow and white.

The German architect’s included eight-point, or Moorish, stars as decoration in the floor tiles and the three domed skylights.
