Walking around the old city centre, beautiful architecture everywhere. And I really like to visit iconic buildings. And it's good to read about the history of this city too

This unassuming building is the oldest surviving synagogue in Prague, and probably the oldest in Europe. Arrive early, go inside, take a seat and feel the aura. This was the center of Prague Jewish religious observance and study centuries ago. Close yours eyes and imagine...More

You should probably read up about this place before going. Lots of History. Not fancy, but there is something about the place that is compelling. Oldest synagogue in Europe. Take the time and just sit there a while and try to imagine the lives which...More

I've seen a lot of synagogues and this one, besides it's history is not very impressive when it comes to architecture. Also, there is no free access, which surprised me, because I do not see the point of religious sights having a fee for an...More

This synagogue is very old. According to the historian this is the oldest synagogues in Europe. If you visit the Jewish quarter you can't miss it. Take care, it is small and mostly oercrowded!

Old New Synagogue is Europe's Oldest Synagogue and although it looks unassuming it is historically important and with its great Jewish Quarter location is a fantastic place to visit. Considering the German occupation of Prague during WW2 it's a miracle it survived but I'm so...More

This is one of the oldest surviving synagogues in Europe. It has been the main synagogue of Prague's Jewish community for more than 700 years. Even today, this synagogue has kept its original seating arrangement around the perimeter of the main hall. The women's sections...More

The structure itself may not attract your attention, but it is a very important place for many reasons. If you don't want to read dry history, Google this "Golem Attic" - maybe it will attract your attention. On a serious note, this is one of...More

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
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
