On this Prague Jewish quarter tour you will visit all the Jewish sites in the city center. It is always better to have a local guide to explain you the history of the quarter, of each building, of each exhibited object in the context that you will understand. The Prague Jewish quarter is called Josefov, the home of the Prague Jewish community where you enter seven different buildings and sites.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and together you will get to the city centre on foot or by public transportation. The tour ends at the Old Town Square. During the Prague Jewish quarter tour you will visit the Jewish Museum which is the synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery in the city centre:

  • Pinkas synagogue: memorial of the Holocaust victims, exhibition of pictures drawn by children in the concentration camp Terezín, entrance to the cemetery
  • Spanish synagogue: reform active synagogue built in Moorish style
  • Old-New synagogue: oldest synagogue in the world (built around 1270) which is still active and was never destroyed and rebuilt
  • Maisel synagogue: exhibition about the history of Jewish Prague/Czech Jews
  • Spanish synagogue: an active reform synagogue, built in the Moorish style as a proud proof of the presence of the Jews in Europe since the Medieval times

Guided tour in Prague in a Jewish quarter

Visit of the Prague Jewish sties with local guide

"The tour was everything I had hoped for"

I had a few glitches confirming my tour between Viator, Lenka tour guide and myself on the night before my tour. This was all sorted and Lenka met me at my hotel the following morning. The tour was everything I had hoped for. The synagogues were beautiful. Lenka was so knowledgeable, her understanding and compassion of the plight of the Jewish people was obvious. Lenka gave me plenty of time to take photos, ask questions, spend my own time at each synagogue. The pace of the tour was perfect, I never felt rushed. I would highly recommend this tour. It is somber in parts, but well worth it.

"Lenka had indepth knowledge of Jewish history and culture"

Our tour guide Lenka was fantastic! She has indepth knowledge of Jewish history and culture. She quickly navigated through the city with incredible holiday tourist traffic. My daughter and I never felt rushed. To end the tour, she offered suggestions on dinner. She even walked us to the restaurant! Do not hesitate to book this tour. Thank you for making our first visit to Prague so memorable.
