Good to see and compare, part of the old city. Should include in your trip. Not very impressive but a good alternative to the other two.

220CZK for one tiny room. We spent about 5 minutes in there and didn’t learn anything particularly interesting. I would definitely not recommend visiting this. Better spending your money on the Spanish or Jerusalem synagogues. Feeling angry and conned!

A bit expensive to enter 300 krona for two. The building is very old but quite small so you can see it in about 10 minutes. It´s just off the street that sells luxury goods and at the beginning of the jewish quarter,

The building has lasted for many years and demonstrates its historical contribution to Prague. The synagogue is still used and very much a part of the Jewish community. It is one of the must see places if interested in history.

This is the oldest remaining temple. It is breath taking especially considering what it went through. Being builtin the 13th century and has gone through several fires and the Nazis. t is amazing to look at, even if you aren't Jewish you can appreciate it...More

Not muck to see. Boring and disappointed. Not worth the ticket you buy (220 Czech krona). There is only one small chamber. Don’t recommend it all

This building sits on a side street, and is pretty old and uninspiring. We walked around it but didn't see the entrance, and therefore just carried on.

Visited on Thursday 12th October while doing a guided tour of the Old Town Prague. This is the best of the Synagogues in the area and not to be missed. Our guide was able to explain all the history associated with this site as well.

In the Jewish quarter we visited a lot of synagogues. All very impressive. This one is the oldest in town. Well preserved.

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
