Expensive for twenty minute walk around. Nice synagogue but nothing more. They do provide a helpful pamphlet in a variety of languages.

It is a miracle that this building survived destruction by the Nazis. Built in 1270, this is a most interesting building. I have only visited one other synagogue, in Cordoba, which is not used, so did not know what to expect. Women were segregated form...More

It doesn’t worth the money or time to visit this place, we didn’t like to see this place and the lady who sold the ticket didn’t know English too much, and even she didn’t reply politely

For me this is the best Synagogue in town. I prefer the old not the new, and this Synagogue is one of the ancient ones that survived. You will find a lot of information and history inside. I advise a visit.

Josefov
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

sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this
