A lovely day was spent looking around the several synagogues, ceremonial hall and cemetery. The cemetery in particular was very moving - especially the memorial. 5 minute walk from the old town square.

Our family of 3 was given unused tickets to the Jewish Museum at our hotel. We decided to take advantage of the opportunity and were happy that we did. The grounds were impressive with the amount of history. We were quite impressed by the history, unfortunately we were sandwiched between tour groups that we could not understand. The paths are...

Jewish museum of Prague - four synagogues, ceremonial hall and the Old Jewish cemetery - wonderfully preserved, lots of interesting artefacts and objects on display. Definitely a must visit! Closed on Saturday and Jewish holidays

We visited the Pinkas Synagogue almost as soon we arrived in Prague as it was one of the sites that we felt was a must see. It was extremely moving, particularly the pictures drawn by children who were sent to the camps. Seeing all the names of those lost was a moving experience that I will never forget.,

The museums and the synagogues themselves were beautiful and very informative. The walls filled with names in the Pinkas synagogue was sobering, touching, and beautifully done. Additionally the exhibit about the Song of Solomon in the Gallery was a welcome surprise.

Jewish were heavily persecuted in the Czech Republic during the Second World War, and they also had a hard life in Prague. They were all confined in the worse district of the city and forced to live in terrible conditions because of their faith. Many Jewish people are still living in this district which has been completely renovated, its sinagogues... More

We traveled with a children's theater group performing a play about the Holocaust. We visited this museum as well as a day trip to Tererinstadt. They were informative and moving. It was an unforgettable experience for all, deepening our understanding of the holocaust.

WIfe and I spent the better part of an afternoon here, reading the local family histories and stories of these wonderful people. Sad and sobering at times, yet shared alot of history artifacts and structures that were untouched in WW2. Worth the stop, The cemetary alone will leave you breathless!!

The Spanish synagogue is really beautiful. Pinkas synagogue is impressive in a sad way. The cemetery is very old and interesting.

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.
