Description

The Great Synagogue in Stolin was built in 1790 - 1793 with the support of the owner of the town, Kashtan Kozenewski. In 1827, the building was severely damaged by fire and was later restored. After WWII, the building accommodated grain storage and it was later abandoned in the 1980s. Currently, it stands as a ruin without roof; only the walls of the synagogue are still intact.

The synagogue was built in the Neo-Classicist style that was fashionable in the late 18th century. Its exterior was decorated by pilasters, and its western and eastern façades were topped by gables. The eastern wall of the synagogue is not straight; its central part projects a little to the east so that the corners look truncated.
