**This place is temporarily closed** Permanent exhibitions: The History of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia, Part 2 This exhibition deals with the history of the Jews in the Bohemian lands from the reforms of Joseph II in the 1780s to the period after the Second World War. It highlights the gradual advancement toward greater equality and emancipation for Jews in Austria-Hungary, describes the foundation of the Czech-Jewish and Zionist movements, and profiles the most important Jewish entrepreneurs, scientists, writers, musicians and artists (including Franz Kafka, Sigmund Freud and Gustav Mahler). It also deals with the redevelopment of the Prague Jewish Town, Jewish sites of Bohemia and Moravia, and the history of the Jewish Museum in Prague. Special focus is on the Shoah of Jews from Bohemia and Moravia, and the Terezin ghetto. Synagogue Silver from Bohemia and Moravia Located on the upper floor, this permanent exhibition features a representative selection of more than 200 of the most valuable silver artefacts from the museum's collections. Most space is given over to Torah ornaments - shields, pointers, finials and crowns. Also on display are charity boxes, pitcher and basin sets for hand washing, Shabbat spice boxes, Kiddush cups, Hanukkah and Shabbat candles, and charity collection trays. The Spanish Synagogue is part of the Jewsh museum in Prague. The Spanish Synagogue is the most recent synagogue in the Prague Jewish Town. Built in 1868 for the local Reform congregation on the site of the 12th-century Altschul, which was the oldest synagogue in the Prague ghetto. It was called the Spanish Synagogue for its impressive Moorish interior design, influenced by the famous Alhambra. The building was designed by Josef Niklas and Jan Bělský, the remarkable interior (from 1882–83) by Antonín Baum and Bedřich Münzberger. František Škroup, the composer of the Czech national anthem, served as organist here in 1836-45.

    Around the time I visited in mid-March, this postcard-perfect square in Old Town Prague—the square of all squares when it comes to this lovely city—was host to an Easter-themed market, with a variety of food stalls, live music, and activities for children. It was a bustling yet relaxing environment to soak in the history and culture of Czechia. Flanked by colorful architecture and the iconic astronomical clock tower, the Staromestske Plaza embodies all what makes Prague so special.

    The view is reminding us of Africa. The beautiful giraffe, 🦒 elephants and more animals. If someone living in Europe and had never visited Africa then he/she suppose to go and visit this Zoo.

    Prague’s Old Town is absolutely delightful, with lots of people during busy periods but certainly not as hectic as the likes of Paris or London. I didn’t go into the astronomical clock or give it much attention on my trip, but I sort of regret not taking more pictures and watching it turn on the hour. It’s a centerpiece to the legendary charm of this city.

    West of the Vltava, you’ll find yourself in Mala Strana, a.k.a the Lesser Town. There’s so many GREATER things to do and see here, though…Petrin Park, Prague Castle, and St Vitus Cathedral to name a few. Strolling the historic streets could occupy you for hours on end. Don’t forget Vltava’s west while visiting Prague.

    Constructed in the late 16th century by the Czech nobleman Jaroslav Of Perstejn,its a great building to explore, most distinctive feature of this palace building is the beautiful stone tower ,all in all its a great place to check out if you're in Prague Castle.

    A stunning piece of architecture! I was speechless by the beauty and majestic architecture.
    The old gentleman who work “guard” the interior of the cathedral don’t speak a word of English, but that does not shy away from them being helpful, communicative and just plain lovely.

    Definitely see a concert at the Municpal House. We thoroughly enjoyed a one hour 8pm performance of selections from Mozart and Dvorak. We wore jeans and sneakers. We bought the tickets at the box office. The area around the Municipal House was quite busy even after the performance (I think it was a Tuesday night).

    We also had lunch at one of the restaurants, which I recommend (it was the one on the left when entering the building).

    Also, try to see the building in the twilight... it looks amazing with the dark blue sky.
