The High Synagogue (Vysoká synagoga). Called ‘High’ for the lofty position of its prayer room located on the second floor of the building, this synagogue was built in the 16th century. It was financed by Mordechai Maisel, mayor of the Jewish Quarter. Designed by P. Roder in Renaissance style, it was used as a preaching place for councillors from the Jewish Town Hall. There is an exposition of Torah mantles, curtains, silver ornaments, and a Jewish museum shop on the ground floor, but it is no longer open to tours.
