The Bratislava Jewish heritage walk begins in the city’s only remaining synagogue, in Heydukova Street. The synagogue serves as a house of (Orthodox) worship and is also the home, in what was formerly the women’s gallery, of the Jewish Community Museum. From here you can continue to the area of the former medieval ghetto. See the Frostig house on Franciscan Square and pass by the former Hungarian Diet, today the University Library. Stop at the Steiner and Frankl memorial plaques, which remind us of the tragic destiny of two Bratislava Jewish families.

The medieval synagogue and Judenhof were located in what is today Panská Street. The Holocaust Memorial is located on the site of the demolished Neolog synagogue.

Follow the former Jewish Street, most of which was razed in the 1960s, and in one of the surviving houses visit the Museum of Jewish Culture, a branch of the Slovak National Museum. A short walk will bring you to the former Jewish Canteen building. The sites of the demolished Pressburg Yeshiva and Great Synagogue are on the opposite side of the street. Do not miss the Raoul Wallenberg (1912-1947) Monument, commemorating the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews.

Jewish schools were located in what is today Zochova Street. The buildings at No. 3 and No. 5 are evidence of the educational institutions of Bratislava’s Neolog and Orthodox communities. Then continue past the memorial plaque to Slovak flying ace Otto Smik (1922-1944). You may complete your tour at the former Jewish hospital.

Another route will bring you to Bratislava’s Jewish burial sites. The Chatam Sofer Memorial, the Orthodox Cemetery and the Neolog Cemetery are located near the Danube River, west of the city center.
