Trnava Synagogue was built in 1891 according to the plans of Viennese architect Jakub Gartner. The building, with its striking two-tower façade, has been partially reconstructed and now accommodates an exhibition of the Museum of Jewish Culture (installed in the women’s gallery) and a contemporary art space used by Synagogue - Center of Contemporary Art, Ján Koniarek Gallery in Trnava. In front of the Synagogue is a memorial to victims of the Holocaust, built after World War II according to a design by architect Artur Szalatnai-Slatinský.
