The Jewish Quarter


Take some time to visit the Jewish Quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a fetching place, full of charm, an echo of legends, and architectural beauty. It is also a living reminder of the Jewish turbulent times and devastating history, especially during World War II. A silent witness to the ebullient culture and vigorous Jewish life that has long gone by. The history of the Jews in Prague is dated back to the 10th century. Due to the enmity and violence toward them, they have quickly started gathering of their free will or by the authorities compel, at this walled Ghetto. Resides between the Old Town Square and the Vltava River, the Quarter is named Josefov after the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II who issued the "Edict of Toleration". This reform grants the Jews as other non-Roman Catholic a larger degree of religious freedom, which lifts some of the restrictions that were imposed upon them. Most of the Jewish Quarter was destroyed during the late 19th century and the early 20th century and only six synagogues, the old cemetery, and Town Hall remain to tell the fascinating story of this remarkable community.
