The synagogue, located at the village square, belongs to the most charming examples of rural synagogue architecture in Slovakia. The simple four bay building, topped by a hipped roof, is solely decorated by vertical lesenes, and pierced with round-arched windows. On the eastern rear, facing the street, a projection with circular window marks the former location of the ark. The building has been restored recently for cultural purposes; not much of an original interior has been preserved. On the western side of sanctuary stands the former women’s gallery, with original wooden paling with carved decoration.
