“Expensive and not all-inclusive”
Reviewed 16 July 2007

The cost per person for admission, including the audio guide was around £12. We thought that this would take us round all aspects of the Jewish quarter/museum (which, incidentally, we found fascinating) However, when we walked into the Spanish Synagogue, we were told that our tickets were not valid for it and another £5 was sought.
This spoiled what was otherwise a very positive experience. I don't like being ripped off.

Thank you for your comment. The comprehensive ticket for CZK 480 includes Maisel Synagogue Pinkas Synagogue Old Jewish Cemetery, Klausen Synagogue, Ceremonial Hall, Spanish Synagogue, Old-New Synagogue + temporary exhibitions in the Robert Guttmann Gallery.
The ticket for CZK 300 includes all the sites mentioned above except for the Old-New Synagogue which is owned by the Jewish community in Prague, not the Jewish Museum in Prague.
Detailed information on admission is on our website. There is no ticket that would not include the Spanish Synagogue. The Spanish Synagogue and the Robert Guttmann Gallery are the only sites you can visit on a special ticket (CZK 70), other sites are to be visited with the combines tickets mentioned above. Tickets are valid for 7 days and you can enter each museum site once.
Thank you for your understanding. We will be happy to welcome you again.

“fascinating neighborhood”
Reviewed 12 April 2007

Josefov is a fascinating museum of Jewish history in Central Europe. A high admission cost makes this one of the most expensive sites in Prague. Each site in Josefov has its own merits, but together they combine to make a must-see site that will take an entire morning. Crowds can be very large even in the off-season. If you do not see the entire neighborhood, do not miss the Maisel synagogue for its museum, and the Jewish cemetery. The Old Synagogue has a dull interior, and unless admission to all sites has been purchased, it is best admired from outside.

“Not To Be Missed”
Reviewed 6 March 2007

It was a very moving experience to visit the synagogues in Josefov on our recent visit to Prague, especially when you understand the reason why these synagogues were not destroyed as were most others during World War II. They are a very tragic reminder of what once was and is no more. You cannot come away from visiting without feeling moved, especially in one of the synagogues where on the walls of every room are the names of every single person (and the town they came from) that were murdered in the camps during the war. I was crying, and a lot of other people were too. The buildings themselves are quite beautiful, historical and ancient, a mute testament to a time gone by, to a way of life gone forever in this place. The entire Josefov area is worth visiting and walking through. Words cannot describe how beautiful yet sad the synagogues are - they are a must see when you visit Prague.

“Prague's Jewish Quarter”
Reviewed 1 December 2005

Prague's Jewish Quarter, is one of the oldest Jewish's quarters that still exists today. The temples are in great shape, and very interesting to look at. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in jewish history and culture.

“Jewish Quarter Tour”
Reviewed 14 August 2004

A tour of the Jewish Quarter in Prague is a moving testament to the history of Prague and its Jewish residents. We purchased entry for Jewish Museums/Synagogues and were given an option of a tour for only 50 CK more. Why not. We waited for the English tour that started an hour later and met a young Czech Jewish student whose parents survived the was by fighting with the partisans (dad) or Red
Army (mom). There were only myself and my wife on this particular tour. The lovely guide spent over 2 hours walking through the Quarter, explaining a thousand years of Jewish/Czech history and answering plenty of questions about modern Prague.

This was the best, and least expensive, tour in 2 weeks of Europe. Then she admitted she had twisted her foot in a fall that morning during another tour and was in pain the whole time. We had already decided to give her a tip of 200 CK and she deserved it and more. Bravo.
