A large jewish community lived in Prague ever since the 10th century. For most of their history they were restricted to live in ghettos in this neighborhood. The community was mostly wiped out by the Nazi invasion and continued repression in the communist era. In 1994 President Havel returned the synagogues and historic sites back to the rebuilding jewish community.
