Left to the Klausen Synagogue there is a ticket booth where you can purchase museum tickets. However, before we bought our tickets we decided to go inside the store that is to the left of the ticket booth to take a look and we noticed that tickets were also sold at the register so we went in line to get...

Anna gave me and my family a wonderful guided tour of the Jewish Quarter and Museum. Her expertise and knowledge gave me a true and concise insight. My family and I learned many things and were told many personal stories. I would recommend Anna Sion to anyone who is interested in a visit and a tour. Robert Vlcek Florida U.S.A.

We went here as part of our trip as we felt it important to learn about the history of the town and of course it's part in ww2. I was quite disappointed with the lack of information the museum gave you. The most interesting part was the holocaust display with children's drawings and belongings - very thought provoking. The rest... More

With one ticket you will have the access to 5 or 6 places but most of them are empty rooms without any astonishing architecture or decoration so I think I regret spending my time, energy and money to visit Jewish quarter in Prague.

With one ticket you have access to several synagogues and jewish museums, but the main problem is that there are too much people located inside small rooms. You don't get to spend some time there, you just want to get out from the crowd. The synagogues are quite simple, no art that draw your attention.

This was a disappointment. I had been looking forward to touring the area and the synagogues that make up the Jewish Quarter, an important area of Prague. While the synagogue with the names of Holocaust victims written on the walls was moving and its cemetery was intriguing (No photos without buying a photo pass!), the other synagogues and museum displays...

This museum has several floors so you will need to allow much time to visit each. We didn't have a personal guide but listened to the various information on headphones.

Prague is historically the home of one of the largest, oldest and most vibrant Jewish communities in the Diaspora dating back well over a thousand years. The inferno of the Holocaust of the World Wqar II years decimated this community as it did throughout Europe. The remnant however still thrives, relatively speaking, and has been at pains to extablish this... More

As a Jews, we weren't sure if it's necessary to take a special tour for visiting the Jewish Quarter. Paul Batel, the excellent guide with who we went to Terezin concentration camp, recommended her as his colleague and it persuaded us to not to go to the Jewish quarter on our own. In the end we appreciated it and recognized... More

An interesting place with vast amounts of information and a large number of exhibits but at 10am it was so crowded that it was virtually impossible to look at the exhibition of children's painting. There are no efforts on crowd control. The cemetery is a very moving experience and thankfully we were able to walk through it in between large... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
