Jewish Town

Jews settled in Bohemia in the 10th century. The first written record about Prague actually comes from Jewish merchant Ibrahim Ibn Jacob of Cordóba.  The Prague Jewish community was once one of the most important Jewish communities in Europe and local scholars and rabbis were recognized around the world.

Things to see in the Jewish Town:
The Old Jewish Cemetery with its unique and dismal atmosphere. The Old-New Synagogue, which is the oldest, still active synagogue in Europe. The Pinkas Synagogue with the names of the holocaust victims. The Jewish Town Hall with a clock going “backwards”. The Spanish Synagogue with its beautiful decorations.
