3-hour Walking Tour of Jewish Quarter in Prague
US$50.91
Overview
Prague has a rich Jewish heritage and the best way to explore the historic Jewish Quarter is on foot. This 3-hour walking tour explores the UNESCO-listed district, including the former Jewish ghetto, the Old Jewish Cemetery, and the four synagogues that survived Prague’s WWII Nazi occupation. Hotel pickup is included.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Prague hotel in time for a 10am departure. Follow your guide to Prague’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, passing through the grand Wenceslas Square en-route, then set out to explore the atmospheric Josefov Quarter — the former Jewish Town.

Listen as your guide explains the district’s long and tumultuous history, established in the 13th century and serving as a Jewish ghetto for over 600 years. Remarkably unscathed after WWII — Hitler had planned to preserve the area as a museum — the quarter remains one of the best preserved in Europe, and you’ll get chance to see its four beautiful synagogues, the Pinkas Synagogue, Klaus Synagogue, Spanish Synagogue, and Maisel Synagogue.

As well as admiring the old buildings and learning more about the area’s harrowing history, you’ll also visit the Old Jewish Cemetery, with its 12,000 tombstones and over 100,000 burial sites.

Your tour ends around 1pm in Prague’s Jewish Quarter.

interesting, but...

if you're Jewish or already know a lot about Judaism, then simply pick one of two synagogues and do a self guided tour, don't waste money on the guided tour. Our tour guide was not so fluent in English, got the vocabulary wrong and sometime...More
