Men Don’t forget to wear a head cover when visiting. The graves are very close together and one can see that black marble is very much in fashion for 20thC Jewish headstones.

Maybe this is literary curiosity or morbidity, I’m not sure which, but there is, at least for me, a fascination for the so-called “resting places” of famous writers. Maybe it’s just that this is as close as I’ll ever get to them (other than reading...More

We recently visited the New Jewish Cemetery just outside downtown Prague to look for some family gravestones but found so much more. The cemetery is beautifully maintained with a very helpful "porter" who can identify any interred name and direct you to the specific area....More

Part of the Olsanske Cemetery complex across the street from the Radio Free Europe Office. This is out of the way place that gets you out of center city and is accessible by metro or a tram. Beautiful tranquil place. Amazing tombstones and greenery. Well...More

I liked this as it is a very calm and respectful graveyard with the most ornate headstones I've ever seen, and some beautifully mature trees, shrubs and plants. I didn't actually dislike anything about it. It was quite shocking how many of the plaques were...More

Located very close to a tube station, this cemetery is easy to reach. There is also a Christian cemetery across the street so do look for the Star of David on the cemetery spire if you wish to visit the Jewish cemetery. Franz Kafka is...More

One of the best preserved Jewish cemeteries in Europe. Ivy is wild which adds atmosphere but ruins the stones. Get the map at the entrance and enjoy

Out of the way on Vihohradska, but worth a visit for anyone interested in Jewish history. Many of the gravestones are large and ornate -- reflecting the heritage of a wealthy community with powerful leaders. Franz Kafka's grave is in this cemetery. The burial society...More

Back to this site after 11 years - now with 3 little kids - was just right. Kafka and not least all the memorials of Holocaust victims makes this a "must see" if you are visiting Prague. Take the metro direct to the gates of...More
