Jewish tradition is very old in Prague. First jewish people who came here were traders in 1091. After a couple of decades the wall around Jewish houses was built. In 1850 Jewish quarter was renamed and it became the quarter of Josef (by the name of emperor Josef III).
The central building of Jewish quarter is Staronova synagogue. It is the eldest synagogue in the Central Europe and it using like synagogue nowadays too.
