It was also known as Ashkenazic Great Synagogue, the Sinagoga Mare din Constanța, Synagogue of the Ashkenaz and Grand Synagogue of Constanta.

Three of the four walls are damaged. Furthermore, the roof is missing at spots and all the windows are busted out. This structure has fallen into extreme disrepair. Plants are even growing inside of and through the building.

The synagogue was stylized with Moorish influence orginating from the 700’s. Intensely beautiful with smoothly done columns.

Inside, the three floors have cracked and in some spots crumbled away entirely. Anything of value has long since been stolen away. Also, neighbors have even put dogs in the back to guard the forgotten place. Iron gates keep the back side closed while the front doors remain locked.

Finally, the Constanta synagogue has an unknown future.  Although, it seems that complete collapse and utter abandonment forever is probably at stake.

You can find this Synagogue with these coordinates. 44.174467, 28.656728.
