Zion Synagogue of Plovdiv
Tsar Kaloyan St 13 plovdiv
The Zion Synagogue dates from the nineteenth century.
It is still active, but only a small minority of 300 to 400 Jewish inhabitants are still practicing.
Restored in 2003, the synagogue is adorned with a delightful Venetian-glass chandelier and a richly decorated dome.
In the surrounding area, traces of what was once a sizable Jewish quarter can still be found today. This includes Stars of David which are engraved on certain gates.
