Very compact and easy to walk around. Ticket pricing is a bit confusing but just the walk around the gravestones is sufficient.

I went to Jewish museum after reading about it on tripadvisor. There so much of history which one needs to go through to understand the difficulties faced by Jews during the early 1940s and 50s.

After spending whole day in Terezin with the best holocaust guide in the world my grandfather (holocaust survivor) could not say no to recommendation of Mr. Batel to hire his colleague guide Ms. Sion to visit Prague Jewish quarter. Perfect, perfect and one more time perfect! Prague Jewish quarter is home for any Jew. Make sure you hear all the... More

Very small cemetery and nothing really interesting to see here. It's something you can do if you have a spare half hour to spend in an interesting city with plenty of more things to do.

My family of five had a wonderful tour of the Jewish Museum. Our tour guide, Anna Sion, met us promptly at our hotel and took us on a 3 hour tour of the Jewish Quarter/Jewish Museum. Anna was very friendly, patient, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable. Her English language communication skills were excellent. She easily engaged our teenager and younger kids... More

We were a party of four, two with some walking difficulties. Anna Sion took us on a leisurely tour of the Jewish quarter in Prague. Her knowledge of the subject was fantastic, she has done a course in Jewish studies, which was very evident. She is also a very pleasant person. We can highly recommend her.

We booked Anna Kristina Sion from Terezin private tours. We're not Jewish, but we wanted to learn more about Judaism. Anna is very knowledgeable and could answer to all our questions. She is dedicated to studies about Jewish history and not only in Prague. So, we got very interesting deep insight to this unique culture in complex. Now we understand... 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.
