"Jewish Quarter, Jewish Synagogue," Jewish Quarter -Josefov - Tip by ForestqueenNYC

Jewish Quarter -Josefov -, Prague: 83 reviews and 147 photos

Unfortunately, I have no pictures of this tour and I am going on vague memories of my visit there about 10 or 12 years ago. So it is best that I simply refer you to the information from another website. I do highly recommend not missing it, however. In fact, the first time I went to Prague it was because of the recommendation of friends who went on this tour.

"It was Hitler who decided that most of the relics and exhibits in this collection should be preserved - as a museum to an extinct race. It's made up of a number of venues including the Old New Synagogue, one of the oldest in Europe and a cemetary holding over 12,000 graves. There is also a very moving collection of childrens art from Terezin - a camp in occupied Czechoslovakia which served as a transit camp for Jews being moved to concentration camps. "
