Side view

The synagogue in Kladno, a town in the Central Bohemian Region in the Czech Republic, was built in 1884/85. The profaned synagogue in neo-Renaissance style has been a protected cultural monument since 1988.[1]

The synagogue was built according to the plans of the Prague master builder Emanuel Brandt. The women’s gallery and the stone tablets of the law on the façade have been preserved. Jewish services were held in the synagogue until 1939.

Today the synagogue building is owned by the Christian Johann Hus congregation.
