Absolutely loved this tour. Our very interesting Sonia kept captivated with her sense of humour and her knowledge. My only regret is to have done this tour on the last as it helped to really understand Prague!

We were exposed to many interesting features of Prague that even locals were unaware of when I mentioned them. Highly recommended.

This was not a standard tourist tour with a guide reading from a script. Our guide was very knowledgeable about his subject and certainly had a passion for history of Prague. I suspect a lot of his material is based on detailed research he has conducted himself and we were certainly able to gain access to places and interpret the... More

We had a local guide who was very knowledgeable. We visited the housing area; the cemetaries of the Christians and Jews. The Jewish ghetto located outside Prague. Very interesting and soul-searching. This camp was where all the remaining detainees were sent just at the end of the war from other camps as the Nazis were being overpowered.

My friends and I did this walking tour and we had Marek as a guide. The tour was well worth the money and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Prague during the war as well as other key points in history and we enjoyed going underground near the main square which was really interesting. Marek was really clear and funny with... More

Staying in Josefov

Neighborhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighborhood 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 neighborhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
