"The jewish quarter in Prague" Jewish Quarter -Josefov - Tip by Luchonda
Jewish Quarter -Josefov -, Prague: 83 reviews and 147 photos
Jews had first settled in Prague in the 10th century, near the Prague castle which is just across the Vltava river from Josefov. At the time of the First Crusade in 1096, the first recorded pogrom took place in Prague when Jews were systematically killed by the Crusaders. This violence may have been what prompted the Jews to move to the present Josefov quarter of Prague, near the Old Town, in the 12th century. In the 13th century, the Pope decreed that the Jews should be segregated from the Christians and a wall was built around the Jewish quarter.
Directions: From Old-Town Square about 5min north-west.
