There's a big sign on the door as you enter the synagogue telling you to close the door behind you which is fair enough. However, there was someone coming in behind me so I held the door open for her and made my way down...More

Visited the area, and looked at the architecture of all the various buildings . Unfortunately, the synagogue was closed on the day we visited, so we only got an external view.

The Old New Synagogue is important historically, culturally, and architecturally. There is a fee to enter the synagogue. If you do not want to pay the fee, at least take some time to walk around the oldest surviving synagogue in Europe.

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
