Sitting next to the Jewish Cemetery, this 17th Century Synagogue is architecturally interesting and culturally significant--so if you are walking through the Jewish Quarter it is worth a look.

This is a small synagogue located by the Old Jewish Cemetary. It is not the most interesting of the area but it is worth a little time to take quick walk through and immerse yourself in more of the Jewish history.

Thank you for your review. The expositions of the Jewish Museum in Prague are located in four historical synagogues (Maisel Synagogue, Klausen Synagogue with the Ceremonial Hall, Pinkas Synagogue and Spanish Synagogue). The museum tour further includes the Old Jewish Cemetery and Robert Guttmann Gallery.

Perhaps our group was worn out by the time we made it to the Klausen, but we found this to be the least interesting of the Jewish Quarter sites. Worth walking through quickly.

It was absolutely fascinating to go through the various aspects of jewish life,traditions and religious practice. It is very prescriptive but then the Jews have kept their way of life - while other European traditions have been watered down especially in the last 100 years.

In my opinion of all the Synagogues that I've visited this one is the most beautiful one. Inside you will find a small exposition about Jewish cult some artifacts related to their religion. It is a place that you can definitively breath some history.

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
