Stories of Jewish Prague: 3-Hour Historical Tour

Prague’s Jewish community was decimated by the Holocaust.

Innerhalb von zwei Stunden erhält man einen tollen Einblick und Überblick über die Entwicklung des Prager Zentrums und was Prag international für eine Rolle spielte. Viele der Infos wird man in einem Reiseführer sicher nicht zu lesen bekommen. Der freundliche Guide kennt sich historisch bestens aus (nicht nur mit der Geschichte Prags) und gibt nützliche Tipps für den weiteren Aufenthalt.
