Jewish Architecture Synagogue in Lendava, Slovenia
Synagogue in Lendava was built in 1866. It is a Neo-Classicist or rather Biedermeier styled building with elements of baroque survival. On its exterior, it is a compact mass with rounded corners and pilasters of unspecified architectural order, under a hipped tile roof. The structure is smoothly plastered and painted. The prayer hall is lit by two tall round-headed windows in the southern wall; the semicircular window in the eastern wall marked the interior place of the Torah ark (like in Beltinci); three smaller windows in the western part provide light for the starcase to the women's gallery. The entrance door is serving (currently) both men and women is rectangular.
