Having visited the national monument and the army museum, we found this tour online. Our tour guide Sonia was very enthusiastic and provided lots of interesting anecdotes and looked after us in the warm weather. The tour visited old town square and went underground below the town hall, also visiting the Jewish Quarter and other sites along the way. Very... More

Very very interesting tour conducted by Sonia who was very enthusiastic, helpful and encouraged people to ask questions. I learnt a lot about the history of Prague that I otherwise would have not known! She covered Old Town Square - above and below... More

We did the 10:30 am tour. It was recommended as it is cooler earlier in the day. The tour had 12 participants. The tour did a loop through Old Town and the Jewish quarter. We learned so much about the history of the area that went well beyond WWII and touched on how the country was not destroyed in the... More

Such an informative tour. Having done some tours around Prague, we found that we were visiting the same places. Though the information we got from this tour was far more informative and we were able to understand more the significance of the buildings for the Czechs and WW2. A highly recommended tour.

Guide who knew what she was talking about and was genuinely interested in spreading her knowledge. We walked for about two hours above and below ground, and learnt a lot.

We did this tour with Marketa and she was so well informed about this your. Value for money, small tour with great interaction. Thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot that we knew nothing about the war.

Our guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Learnt a lot about Prague in WW2, particularly at the end of the war, that I otherwise wouldn't have known. Highly recommended.

Great greeting and welcome to the group. Only 8 persons, 6 from UK, 1 from Germany and the ubiquitous Aussie. Tour was conducted in English and covered the history from 1938 (The infamous Munich agreement - sell out to Germany), the German occupation, the Resistance (very brave men) the aborted visit of the US Army (another example of political intrigue)...

World war 2 tour was really good and knowledgeable! Marek was humourous and informative! The tour went very quickly and was good that the weather was taken into account! We got to cool down in a building with history! Tour was worth it.

We appreciated learning the history behind the beautiful city of Prague. Our tour was on our third day here and we realized how many sites we had just walked past, not knowing their history, such as the 3 finger plaques of the Resistance and the bronze plaques on the sidewalks noting the former homes of Jewish residents who perished in...

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.
