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
This synagogue is almost like a hidden treasure. It is the oldest landmark of the Jewish town in Prague and is more than 700 years old and built by stonemasons from the royal workshop.
The interior is arched by 6 bays of five ribbed vaulting...More
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.
This was part of our ticket for the Jewish Quarter and as the Spanish Synagogue is currently shut our only real insight into the religion. TripAdvisor suggests 1-2 hours n our on line guide an hour but to be honest we were in n out...More
This amazing structure is arched by six bays of five-ribbed vaulting with twelve pointed windows representing the twelve tribes of Israel. The synagogue has been serving the Jewish community for over 700 years. Helpful Hint: Buy the ticket that includes the cemetery and museum with...More
Jewish Quarter wasn't a choice to review so I picked the oldest and most interesting of all the Synagogues. We followed the Rick Steve's walking guide of the Jewish quarter of Prague and found it to be an enriching lesson in history in addition to...More

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.
