Židovská radnice, Prague
(2.8/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
The Jewish Town Hall in Josefov, Prague, was constructed adjacent to the Old New Synagogue on the corner of Maiselova and Červená Ulice in 1586 in Renaissance style under the sponsorship of Mayor Mordechai Maisel. It acquired its Rococo facade in the 18th century.

The building was the main meeting house of the local Jewish community but is currently closed to the public. It is perhaps best known for its two clocks, one on a tower with Roman numeral markings, the other, lower, has Hebrew numerals, which are the same as letters in the Hebrew alphabet. The Hebrew numerals begin with aleph and continue counterclockwise around the clock dial.

  • This beautiful building is also referred to as point of interest on the map of the Jewish neighborhood, even on the ticket of the museum. However, it is apparently impossible to visit and State there is no background information about this building. A missed opportunity!
