Do not enter the Jew Museum to the side of the clock, extremely disappointing, almost nothing underneath, except an underground hall. Guys are given a free, (looks disposable) Jewish hat. Entrance fee 140 czk, not worth it.

The area has been completely redone and is beautiful and high end. But when you think about what happened during WWII it is very sad to remember what happened to the Jewish populations during that time. The architecture in the area is spectacular with many...More

This is the Jewish town hall, which is rarely visited (it was not open to the public during our visit). The building features some lovely clocks and it is worth passing by it when you stroll in the Jewish quarter.

A really pretty, renaissance style building in the middle of the affluent Jewish quarter of Prague. Take a look at the clocks on the front of the building, one goes forward, the other backwards, apparently when built the architect thought it would be good to...More

We came upon this during one of our walks around Prague. Thankfully someone on Trip Advisor told us that the importance of the Hebrew clock is that it runs backwards. Nice curiosity.

A picturesque sight in Jusefov. Built in the 16th century in Rococo style. Is now the seat of the Jewish comunity in Prague. At the tower 2 clocks: one in Roman figures and one in Hebrew.

We went to the jewish town and saw this clock but we didn't know it goes counterclockwise til now. We think only "oh, a clock". They should warn tourist about it

Not open for tourist but stay to admire the Hebrew Clock that runs counterclockwise. Another kind of Jewish Ghetto that you'll find in any other cities of Europe.

Impressed by the architecutre and maintenance thereof during the centuries and history. Maybe what we did not like is that buildings have been re-organised into restaurants or stores with not much indication of the past.

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
