Across a bridge over a rushing river and a short pretty walk from the ever so charming town center, you will find a well preserved synagogue commemorating the area’s vanished Jewish Community. An excellent and informative exhibit of the community’s long history, including photos of...More

The Cesky Krumlov Synagogue is not in an ancient building, but it does bear witness to the history of the Jews in Cesky Krumlov. In addition to seeing the interior of the synagogue, we visited the interesting exhibit to the left of the entrance on...More

... there are reasons to stop by. First, it's off the main tourist path, so you'll leave some of the crush behind you and see fewer folks with selfie-sticks. Second, the building has been nicely restored. Third, for a time at the end of WWII...More
