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.
