This synagogue, built in the 13th Century and still active today, is a solemn reminder of what Jewish Life was like over the centuries. It is sparse and yet beautiful -- without the ornamentation found in some synagogues and particular in churches. It is an...More

Very expensive but you are getting to visit one of the oldest Jewish houses of worship in the world. Layout is not designed for tourists (obviously) so it can be pretty crowded inside.

This synagogue is the oldest one in Europe and still in use today by Prague's Jewish community. The synagogue is neither impressively big nor richly decorated, but it is a beautiful space that radiates timelessness. It is an essential part of any tour of the...More

History, stories and legends! Amazing that this old building (built in the 13th century) has survived the travails of Europe to tell the stories of its architecture and people.

The Old-New Synagogue was built in 1270 and has been a house of prayer for over 700 years. Two huge octagonal pillars inside the hall anchor five-rib vaults on the ceiling. This is a historical as well as a culturally rich building. It is a...More

Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small
neighbourhood centered around Široká street is
completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As

sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this
