Yoga in The Status Quo Ante Synagogue in Trnava

I remember  the synagogue of Trnava as a ruine . Was beautiful but the same time very sad to see it. Now Synagogue is used for cultural events.

The synagogue, designed by the Viennese architect Jakub Gartner and built in 1897 on Halenárska street,  has been used as the Jan Koniarek contemporary arts center since 1994. The building was a ruined shell in 1990 — the restorers who converted it into the gallery two decades ago chose to retain and incorporate evidence of the devastation. The outer appearance was left to look unrestored, and inside, much was deliberately left looking unfinished. This treatment allowed the building to stand not just as a contemporary culture center, but, symbolically, as a memorial to the town’s 2,000 Jews who were murdered in the Shoah. (A large sculptural Holocaust memorial also stands outside near the entrance.)*

The new, €1 million restoration, carried out by the Trnava Self-Governing region with funding from the EU.
