The Jewish district of Prague- Josefov. There are several synagogues (4) in this area.
Pinkas Synagogue is one of them, a former private synagogue and actually reformed as a Holocaust memorial (77.000 jewish people died in the second WW). The old Jewish Cemetery is an extention of the synagogue. Walking around this area means opening your eyes.
If you look up you will enjoy a lot of "Jugendstil architecture - builded in the early 20th century" and nice looking buildings. The jewish district is located near the old square of Prague
So don't miss it
