Grand Choral Synagogue, St. Petersburg, Russia
The second largest synagogue in Europe which Poet Osip Mandelstam called a "lavish, outstandish seductress". Built between 1880 and 1888, consecrated in 1893, the St. Petersburg Synagogue could only be built only after a building permit was obtained from Tsar Alexander II. This still active synagogue is now a national landmark.
