Private Tour of Prague: 'Jerusalem of the West'


Prague is often called the "Jerusalem of the West", and even though a very limited percentage of the original buildings has been preserved till these days, the collection of items in the Jewish Museum, as well as visit of the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Old-New Synagogues, are true highlights of a visit to Prague.

As part of the tour we will be walking through the area of former Jewish quarter. The Jewish museum is located in the remaining Synagogue, used today as exhibition ground. We will visit the Old Jewish cemetery, and walk past the thumb of Rabi Löw. In case of interest, there is a chance of visiting the oldest still serving Synagogue in Europe - the Old-New Synagogue. Newly there is a chance to see the original mikveh from the 16th century.

Part of the tour is also a visit of the memorial to the victims of the Holocaust in Pinkas Synagogue, together with the exhibition of children's drawings from the Terezin-Ghetto.
