If you don't have jewish or czech roots you might come out a little disapointed. For me who has both it was quite an emotional visit.

The whole of the Jewish Quarters was an interesting part of Prague. The museum and the cemetery were of particular interest to me. I did take a tour that I would recommend. Its hard to gather all the history and its impact without the knowledge.

It is in the oldest jew cemetery in Prague. The jew quarter in Prague is pretty old and has several interesting stories. If you are in this kind of visit, you should really visit the graveyard.

As you can see by the picture the grave markers are on top of each other. When you see it in person, it is overwhelming to see so many headstones in a small area.

The jewish quarter in Prague is very interesting. In the various buildings you find exhibitions with explanations of Jewish life (and death) and one get a fairly good picture of what is means to be a Jew. One further get very good view of history of Jews in Prague. Worth a visit - half day for a general overview, full... More

Visited here whilst in Prague for a few days and really enjoyed the experience. I'd definitely recommend getting an audio guide as it helped to give us more detail in each of the buildings than was displayed. Really interesting to walk around particularly in the Jewish Graveyard where the audio guide pointed out some important headstones and features.

Unlike most museums, this does not consist of a single structure, but rather a collection of synagogues (and one graveyard) in the old Jewish quarter. The synagogues are all dissimilar and also have different exhibits, and the graveyard is unlike anything you have ever seen.

admission fee was too high--other than that, it was interesting and eerie and sad, walking through the graveyard... visitors leave 'notes' on little bits of paper and place them on top of gravestones.

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.
