Full description
Explore the Jewish Quarter of Prague for an overview of the area's history and modern life, starting outside the Rudolfinium on Jan Palach Square. Located on the banks of the River Vltava, the neo-renaissance concert hall is one of the oldest in Europe and had its debut concert in 1896 when Antonín Dvořák conducted. Walk to the Jewish Quarter, known as Josefov. Hear stories about the Jewish community and its most famous people. Look inside one of the four synagogues (Maisel Synagogue, Pinkas Synagogue, Klausen Synagogue, Spanish Synagogue) in the area and go to the Old Jewish Cemetery, one of the oldest in Central Europe. Your guide is an expert in the Jewish history of Prague and its people, and will tell stories that bring the history of the Jewish Quarter and its synagogues to life. End at the Spanish Synagogue, which is now closed for reconstruction until 2022, built in 1868 on the site of Prague’s oldest Jewish house of prayer, known as the "Old Shul."

    Very thorough and concise tour.

    Michaela (Meisha) was an excellent tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave us lots of information above and beyond the tour requirements itself. Although this is a small area it was important to have a guide to give you all the details you might otherwise not have known. Highly recommended.

    Amazing and informative

    Our guide was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly knowlagable and shared information about both the past and present. My mother has some mobility issues and she was patient and always stopped and pointed out where she could sit down. We did several tours while in Prague and this was hands down the best. The guide made it all come to life and personal, both in terms of the Jewish quarter and the history of Prague as a whole. I will highly recommend to others.

    Great for History people

    Our guide, 'Jerry' was wonderful. He spoke and understood English very well. He was well versed in Jewish history. I did stump him on two occasions - At the Pinska Synagogue where there are 77,000 people's names are listed with the date of their death during WWII, there was one line with the date of 2002 - it was the date of the 2002 flood. The other was in the Baroque synagogue. Jewish people use a different calendar.One piece of furniture had the date of 1768. Had it been a Jewish piece of furniture, it would have been 5,000+. Jerry had not realized it.
