Even for non-Jews, this was one of the most moving sites we have seen in Europe. The complex of museums, synagogues and related sites are very well presented. A lot of care has gone into preserving and restoring some of the only Jewish sites in Europe not destroyed by the Nazis, though most of the people were of course murdered.... More

A synagogue with the names of Prague's Holocaust victims written on the walls, an exhibit of artwork from children of the Terezin ghetto, the old Jewish cemetery --- a vibrant community of Jews wiped out. Prague is a city with so much history... not all of it good but all of it worth learning about.

This is for sure my favorite place in Praha since I have been there in 1989. The cemetery is a special place where you can breath history and understand how was life for Jewish. But its a pity that you cant see all the gravestones from near, you can walk only on the marked path, during my first visit you... More

There is no actual Jewish Museum. The attraction is made up of several Synagogues in the Old Jewish Quarter and the Old Jewish Cemetery. It's really best to get a guide who will give you the history of the Jewish Quarter and it is quite fascinating (although if you're not Jewish I'm not sure how interested you would be.

First piece of advice is to buy a ticket that enables you to see all of the attractions in the Jewish quarter, it is so much cheaper this way, These can be bought from the office opposite the New Old Synagogue. The Museum itself is quite small but has some good artefacts and explanations of Jewish life. To get a... More

Prague's Jewish history is old ( back to the 900s) and covers both relative emancipation and the inevitable cruelty of middle ages europe and the cruelty of the Nazi regime. The museum covers Jewish religious practice over the years in Prague

Staying in Josefov

Neighbourhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighbourhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small enough that a person could touch the houses on both sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this neighbourhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
