I am not a fan of "sectorial" tourism, much less Jewish sites (have enough of those where I come from)... But the Jewish museum complex in Prague is a must visit. It's really different from other sites we've been to before. There's an exhibition of...More

We expected more and got less. The woman who collected our fee was very rude (we don't know why). Otherwise save your money for better Jewish places to visit.

We visited the Jewish Museum and Cemetery which brought tears to our eyes. It is important to remember the history of European Jew during WW II.

Too many people were rushing around. Buy a ticket for everything! This includes the meeting hall; cemetery and four synagogues most of which are effectively museums. Take your time to absorb the atmosphere.

This is the second time I've visited this museum. It is actually a group of buildings with many displays of Jewish artefacts plus a walk round the old Jewish cemetery. As you might expect, the exhibits which are related to the Holocaust are extremely moving....More

Touching series of synagogue museums and the memorable cemetery. Very informative and educational. Indoor and outdoor so save for a nice day. We did a self guided tour using a guidebook which worked fine for us.

Thank you very much for your review and we are looking forward your next visit!

Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small
neighbourhood centered around Široká street is
completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As
the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a
few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish
cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this

If all you want to do there is pray at the kever, I believe that you can visit the Kehilla offices (a block or two away) during business hours, and explain the situation. In such a case you can get in for free. BTW, this is... More
