Prague is all magic and romance – cobbled streets and gold-tipped spires, stone bridges and historic synagogues, charming old beer halls and dazzling crystal shops. Embraced by the Vltava River, below the majestic Prague castle, sits one of the most beautiful and pristine Old Towns in all of Europe. Prague also boasts one of the richest and best-known Jewish histories on the continent; imagine visiting a synagogue built in 1275! By the 18th century the city flowered into one of Europe’s most important centers of Jewish life, and more Jews lived here than anywhere else in the world.
We start in the Old Town Square, next to a doorway considered one of the most important spots in the city for Jewish intellectual history. From here, you will go on a walking tour the Jewish ghetto and village. You will visit the many Synagogues, dedicated to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust from Bohemia and Moravia and explore the well-known Old Jewish Cemetery where the Maharal is buried as well as the Ceremonial Hall. You will also see the Jewish Town Hall, built in the 16th century by the Jewish mayor of Josefov, which today serves as the center of the Jewish community in Prague. Following these, you’ll visit the most spectacular synagogue in Prague.
City highlights will be included in the tour according to your wishes.
