Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague

3.9
Small but rich in cultural attractions, Jewish Museum in Prague counts among Europe's best-preserved ghettos. Paradoxically, Hitler's intent to create an "exotic museum of an extinct race" here served to ensure the small enclave's continued existence through the destruction of World War II. Within the confines of the atmospheric neighborhood, situated within the old town, you can explore six historical synagogues and a medieval cemetery, one of the oldest and largest surviving Jewish graveyards in the world. Start your tour at the compact quarter's 13th-century Gothic synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe and a rumored resting place of Jewish folklore's famous Golem. Jewish Museum in Prague is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Prague Edition.

    To buy tickets, and he can take the most synagogues. Introduction to the history and culture of the Jewish religion, and also felt that from the past to the present consecutive time, superimposed over a tombstone covered with MOSS. On the inside wall of the synagogue, people's names and date of birth death closely written and most from 1943 to 1945 was died. It's obvious many lives is disrupted by the persecution and the sad. Also wrote a children's painting exhibition, but many of the dark, fear and sorrow was expressed. I hope to visit there, to not repeat the sad history.

    Philistine in Jewish culture that has allowed me to have some elements of knowledge. In addition to the old cemetery and the memorial to the deportation. Very moving

    At the beginning I did not want to visit it, but during the visit, I actually enjoyed seeing it. It can become quite emotional as you will see the largest collection of children's drawings from the pe...  more »

    Worth the money (500czk) to see everything. The altneushul (old new synagogue) puts the price from 330 to 500 and probably wouldn't be worth it for people who aren't very interested as the building is a working synagogue with no exhibitions and is therefore quite simple inside. However for 170czk more it would be worth it for anyone interested in the 14th century building, or for visiting Jews who would like to see what has been a massively important building in the faith. There is no access to the women's part of the synagogue so you can only access the main room and the hallway.

    A great way to look back in time while visiting the castle. It can be a bit crowded and the walkways are thin, but well worth a visit.

    Place was okay but little bit dull. The flow of story line was not in a chronological basis. Little bit of stories here and there with little coherence.
