Overpriced, rude ticket seller she was disrispectfull to me and my girlfriend for no reason. The place is basically a scam they make you buy tickets for the whole place you can t buy them individually. Skip it.

Short, but interesting walk through the "ghetto". Jewish heritage place/quarter where business rules :( Don't buy the expensive 500Kr ticket for your visit as it isn't worth the money spent!

This refers to the area where several of the synagogues are located as well as the Jewish cemetery too. It was/is an important part of Prague and now still has a story to tell about the history of the area as well as the history...More

The Jewish Quarter is one of the more interesting and unique parts of Prague. Our family visited after spending the morning at Terezin, so it was all the more interesting to us after that concentration camp experience. We enjoyed the synagogues and the cemetery but...More

OK, let’s be honest, it’s not big. The charges to get in to the places of interest are a bit silly and it has no resemblance to the area that the ghetto was. Still, it’s important to remember this place existed and continues to exist....More

Not for everyone but a ton to learn and be grateful for while taking in history and being thankful. Be prepared for some entry fees but if you are a history and beauty, its well worth it.

Everything of interest in Josefov is inside, or enclosed, like the cemetary and the old-new synagogue. For the rest there isn't much too see here. Not exactly cheap either. When we visited we kind of hiccuped when confronted with the 200 Kč (per person!) access...More

Visiting the Josefov (Old Jewish Quarter) is a must for Jews and non-Jews alike. Once one of the most important and influential Jewish community in Europe has almost totally annihilated in the Holocaust, and its buildings, institutes and graveyard are standing as a memorial for...More

This is the Jewish Quarter of Prague,it's got a really nice vibe to the area,although popular it's not over touristic, seeing the synagogues and cemeteries, the architecture of the surroundings and generally just walking around absorbing the atmosphere of this district of Prague is special....More

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

Martin tours do bus trips around Parague, and most of the buses pass through this area. Yuo can also just go to the Old Jewish Quarter, which is near the Old Town Square, and buy your tickets there. However, I'd suggest that... More
