Stories of Jewish Prague: 3-Hour Historical Tour

2. Stories of Jewish Prague: 3-Hour Historical Tour

Your 3-hour tour begins at the Old-New Synagogue, the oldest functioning synagogue in Europe. Built around 1270, it is also among the oldest Gothic structures in Prague. At the heart of Jewish culture, this synagogue serves as the backdrop for a discussion of Jewish religious and social customs during the medieval period. Visit the Renaissance-era Town Hall built by Mordechai Maisel and hear about the Golden Age of Prague’s Jewish community. As you continue to move through one of the largest collections of Judaica in the world, you’ll come to understand the paradoxes of the Jewish experience in Prague. In 1782 Josef II issued the Edict of Toleration, granting the Jews religious freedom, eliminating professional restrictions, and allowing Jewish children to attend schools and universities. A grateful community renamed the ghetto district Josefov, as it is still known today. All this freedom was destroyed in the 20th century by the genocidal nationalism of Nazi Germany. Prague’s Jewish community was decimated by the Holocaust. Hear about the political, economic, and ethnic tensions that led to Hitler’s invasion of Czechoslovakia and the implementation of the Nazi’s Final Solution in Prague.

One of the best tours we have ever taken!

Our guide was Pavel and he was extremely knowledgeable and provided great explanations that made his information relatable. Prague has a rich Jewish history, but Pavel brought it all to life for us. Definitely the highlight of our time in the city!

It was an emotional but educational experience

Nina was a gracious and knowledgeable guide. Spent three hours covering the Jewish community in detail. She wove in actual facts at each of the 5 synagogues that we visited. The pace was perfect and I enjoyed the afternoon on this tour

I was impressed with Ina's knowledge and interest in the topic

Ina did a nice job of pacing our group of 4 through the various synagagues and museums. We were impressed that she has learned so much and she herself isn't Jewish. She was easy to understand.

Very good and informative

Martina is a great guide. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. There was not a question she couldn’t answer and she has a very agreeable personality. Highly recommended.
