Book Jewish Quarter Walking Tour
The Jewish Quarter Walking Tour traces the history of what was once the largest Jewish ghetto in Europe.

This moving story embraces the traditions, customs and legends of the Jewish people in Prague, from their early settlements in the 10th century, through the poverty of the pogrom refugees, their successes and their enforced isolation.

We learn of the every day life of the Jewish people throughout the ages; how they lived, worked and survived in the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) in Prague.

Admission to, and a guided tour of, all the monuments forming the Jewish Museum in Prague is included in the trip.

The story vividly unfolds as we explore the synagogues, the cemetery and the streets of the former Jewish Ghetto. Why for instance were people buried twelve deep, one on top of the other, and who was the famous “Golem”? We also discover why, despite the terrible purges during the Nazi occupation, Adolf Hitler wanted to preserve the Jewish Ghetto in Prague.

And, as we tour the Jewish Quarter we'll discover a little of the life of Franz Kafka, the famous author born and raised here.

The Jewish Quarter forms an integral part of the history of Prague. It's a fascinating story, if you let us tell it.
