THE SYNAGOGUE

Did you know? Plans for the construction of the synagogue in Decin materialized at the end of the 19th century with a fundraising campaign. The synagogue was built in 1907 in a faux oriental Beaux Arts style on the site of an athletics hall in what is now Zizkova ulice. It was dedicated the same year by Rabbi Max Freund. The destruction of the synagogue in 1939 was prevented at the last moment by the mayor of Podmokly. In 1941 the building was occupied by the Nazis, who painted a map of England on its floor. After World War II the building was not used again until it was made an archive in 1966. More information...

THE STONE BRIDGE

Did you know? The historic stone bridge spanning the Ploucnice not far from Decin Castle was built in 1564-1569 after a flood washed away the original structure in 1561. The sandstone bridge has four arches and is built in the late Gothic style with crenellated sides. It is 84 meters long, 4.8 meters wide, and rises 7.7 meters above the river. The sculptural grouping portraying St. John of Nepomuk, St. Vitus, and St. Wenceslas, with reliefs showing their deaths as martyrs, was done by M. J. Brokof in 1714. The structure is a protected landmark accessible only for pedestrians and cyclists. More information...
