  • In relation to the word "Prague Josefov" is almost a synonym for the word "synagogue" is precisely in the area of the Czech capital are the most amazing and unique sacral buildings of Judaism. His acquaintance with the religious component of the Prague district, which has the name of the Emperor Joseph II, whose reform would effectively improve the lives of the Jews in the Czech capital, I started with a visit to the high synagogue (Vysoká synagoga), which, incidentally, has a second name- Town Hall (Radniční synagoga). Why "the" rather than "in"? Yes, everything is simple-get into "nutrjanku" this sacral Jew achieves a Nobel, to put it mildly, not really. That is why the "k" ... The first name of the Jewish Temple (high) due to the fact that it is there at one time met the Court of rabbis is an original supreme judicial organ of the sons of Zion. That to "ratushnosti"-the synagogue for a long time was part of the Jewish Town Hall. Construction financing (simultaneously with the Town Hall) was involved in the notorious Mordechai Majzel, and designed the building, which dates back to the year 1577, according to some reports, the emigrant from Italy Pancras Roder (Pankratius Roder). What is now before my eyes is the fruit of many reconstructions, the last being held in year 1883 by architect J. M. Vertmjullera (J. M. Wertmüller). The building is not outwardly beautiful or attractive is attention immediately moves to the "side" which stuck building Jewish Town Hall with its fun for hours, however, I gladly made a number of frames, adding to my compilation of sacred buildings Prague.

  • This building is used as a meeting place of the district. Currently published. Very narrow sectional shoulder to Jewish people who once walked?

  • From the point of view of history and architecture-an interesting object for inspection. And here there is no way to get inside. Visits are only possible in an organized group, and only with the permission of the local Jewish community. For the average tourist, almost an impossible quest.
