Josefov district and its most important sites with a private guide

During this tour you will learn a lot about history, living conditions, religion and customs of Prague Jewish community members. Prague's Josefov district ts is one of the most fascinating parts of the city, full of stories to tell, legends and mysteries to reveal, and architecture to admire. There are reasons why here is one of the best preserved old Jewish cemeteries and the oldest active synagogue in Europe - and I will explain you why. Join me for these discoveries!


We will visit venues of the Prague Jewish Museum:
Pinkas synagogue (Holocaust memorial), Old Jewish cemetery, Spanish synagogue and possibly the oldest surviving active synagogue of Europe, Old-New Synagogue.

A Recent Review of this tour

Katerina is wonderful! Both informative and engaging, she brought the Jewish district to life and taught us a great deal about the Czech Republic, life under communism, and the vast history of the tribes in the area. With a PhD in Anthropology, she truly know her stuff! I highly recommend this tour—and would book others from her, too. If you're headed to Prague, contact Katerina to find out all she can show you—and teach you—about this amazing city!
