Among the ancient tombstones are centuries of history, moss covered, though here and there inscriptions have withstood lifetimes of weathering. The museum also has much to offer...and overall, a space for quiet introspection on the passing years.

If you have the time, you can walk around and take your time to see this interesting area.
The Spanish Synagogue was under restoration when I was there.

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
neighbourhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
