Židovská radnice, Prague
(2.9/5 based on 30+ 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.

  • The town hall was built in the sixteenth century in the area inhabited by the Jews in Prague. It turns out that already in those ages attended separate municipal management. Now the building is closed to the public.

  • Near the synagogue Staronova going towards Meisel saw this building that is not explored inside as it still used. Curious about the watch but nothing special. In the Jewish quarter I found things much more interesting.

  • The building itself is a beautiful contrast of pale blue and white building. So raise a little eye contact with the clock tower, it will mark is restricted to appearance.
