Come explore with us the mysterious fifth quarter of Prague. Jews came to Prague already back in the 10th century and the development of the Jewish community played an essential part in the development of the city as a whole. We’ll explain the entrancing history the Jewish community and share the stories from their famous representatives.
On this tour, we’ll take you to visit five different synagogues – each of them very unique in style – and the Old Jewish Cemetery dating back to the 15th century.
All the sites are part of the Prague’s Jewish Museum, the most visited museum in the Czech Republic. The only exception is the Old-New Synagogue which is not part of the museum, but as the oldest still active synagogue in the world, we are obviously going to visit it too.
Immerse yourselves into the life and traditions of Jews who were confined to the former Prague ghetto for more than 600 years.
Prague is the only European city whose Jewish heritage was kept intact during World War II. We think that’s just one of the reasons why you can’t miss this tour on your trip.
And as we expect you’ll be a bit tired after the tour, why not add a Czech lunch with your guide in our favorite restaurant nearby? Click on the add-on button below to make sure we reserve a table there in time.

In winter, temperatures can get quite low, remember to put an extra sweater into your backpack. But this is your vacation, so if you are cold during the tour, say so to your guide.

Prague’s Old Town is full of cobbled streets – please wear a decent pair of shoes. Walking involved in the tour may vary, but it is definitely not a marathon. Still, please let us know in advance if you do have any mobility issues. We can always adjust the itinerary so that less walking is involved.
Also kindly note that the Jewish Quarter consists of religious sites. Please ensure you wear appropriate clothing that covers your knees and shoulders. Don’t worry if you didn’t bring a kippa with you, you can borrow one in the Synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery free of charge.
