Book Now

 
From the Event Organizer:
Explore the long and fascinating history of Jewish people in Prague, dating from the tenth century, through the atrocities of World War II, up to the present day. Located in the heart of Prague’s Old Town, the Jewish Ghetto is a truly eye-opening journey into the heart of medieval European history.

Your tour will include visits to the numerous synagogues open to the public, including Europe’s oldest working Jewish Temple- the Old-New Synagogue. Completed around 1270, the Old-New Synagogue is one of Prague’s earliest Gothic buildings and one of its most beautiful. You have to step down into it because it predates the raising of Staré Město’s street level in the medieval period, to guard against floods.

Throughout your tour, you will gain a greater appreciation of the struggles the Jewish community has faced in Central Europe and will understand how in the 19th century, Jewish hardship would eventually become woven into the intellectual movement of Prague.
