The synagogue in Lipník nad Bečvou is the oldest synagogue in Moravia. It was built in the 2nd or 3rd decade of the 16th century, immediately after the construction of the walls to which it was attached. It is also the second oldest synagogue in the Czech Republic after the Old Synagogue in Prague.

The synagogue was structurally modified different tims, for instance in the 70s of the 18th century, most recently in the years 1948-50 as a prayer room. Entrances from the east side were canceled and moved to the north and south walls. Today’s interior of the prayer room includes the larger than life reliefs of Moses, Jesus and Jan Hus, the work of the Moravian artist Navrátil from Velké Újezd.

Today it serves as a prayer hall of the Czechoslovak Hussite Church.
