<FONT COLOR='RED' SIZE='3'>JOSEFOV</FONT>(Joseph's town or the Jewish neighborhood)
This neighborhood used to be a Jewish ghetto, but was renamed after Emperor Joseph II. This is the neighborhood of Franz Kafka and you'll find the home where he was born here (I don't know the address, but it's near Old Town Square), as well as an exhibition of his life and work.
On the other end of Josefov, is the Jewish Museum which includes the Old Jewish Cemetery. This place is in the middle of the city, but it seems eerily peaceful in the shade of some crooked trees that match the crooked and haphazardly laid out gravestones. The oldest gravestone dates to 1439 making this the oldest surviving Jewish burial ground in Europe.
Address: Stary zidovsky hrbitov
Directions: Stare Mesto
