Bolshaya Bronnaya Synagogue

Nikolay Galkin/ТАSS

An outlandish-looking modern building in the heart of Moscow. Through the glass you can make out the reconstructed Mauritanian facade of the synagogue that had stood here since the end of the 19th century. This temple became the centre of religious life for Moscow's Jewish community when the choral synagogue at Kitay-gorod was closed down. A fabulous view of the city opens up from Jerusalem, the kosher restaurant on the roof of the synagogue. Moscow's only kosher pizzeria is also here.
