This is an absolute must do when in Prague. It's worth putting aside a whole day for if you can, but if not, definitely give it half. The Jewish history in Prague is nothing short... read more

This is not a traditional museum, it consists of 5 synagogues, the cemetery and the ceremonial hall. The Pinkas synagogue was our starting point and it has all of the Jewish victims names painted on the walls, this was mind blowing... We continued into the cemetery which I could not believe my eyes, people can tell you how many graves... More

The Jewish Museum is actually 5 very old synagogue's, the old Jewish cemetery, a ceremonial hall and town hall. We began at the Pinkas synagogue. This is the 2nd oldest synagogue of the Jewish quarter. The inside is a memorial to the 80,000 Jewish victims of the holocaust from Bohemia and Moravia. This was especially moving since I found my...

It is one kind of experience to read about the decimation of Czech Jewry and it is more weighty to hear and see all the names of our communal family that were lost during the Shoah.

it is a measure of how Prague has grown that this astonishing collection of historical buildings isn't the # 1 attraction in the city. A cluster of synagogues and cemeteries, this is a living monument to PRague's jewish history, and a credit to Prague that it is featured. Extraordinary. Each synagogue brings something different to the experience....artifacts, architecture, age...and the... More

We booked a private tour of the Jewish Quarter and learned so much. Besides taking us to all the Jewish sites she had so ,ugh knowledge of the history past and present. I cannot recommend this tour more highly, I learned so much I would not have without Anna as our guide.

Placing Prague Jewish history into a larger historical context, Anna was informative and engaging. With our modest knowledge of the Jewish quarter, Anna helped us understand the exceptional challenge of being Jewish in Prague. She is learning her own history, and in the process offers a rich overview of the Jewish Quarter. Hard to imagine a better guide, Anna gave... More

We booked Anna based on reviews from Trip Advisor and, once again, the contributors to Trip Advisor got it right! Anna was really an exceptional guide in every way.

This is an absolute must do when in Prague. It's worth putting aside a whole day for if you can, but if not, definitely give it half. The Jewish history in Prague is nothing short of fascinating, and the cemetery is extremely poignant but still very interesting.

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.
