We’ll explore the Prague’s “fifth” quarter and its stunning history. Our walk will take us to one of the most captivating Jewish museums in Europe. We’ll step back into the 13th century, when Jews of Prague were forced to vacate their homes and settle in this area that eventually became a ghetto. In its original form the ghetto does no longer exist. It was mostly demolished and rebuilt to what we shall see. Even though, we can still admire some of those old edifices, like the synagogues and the old town hall. We will step into the marvellous Old-New Synagogue, the oldest functioning synagogue in Europe, into the Spanish Synagogue, the most beautiful one, and into the Pinkas Synagogue, where the names of all Czech Jewish victims of the WWII holocaust are printed, alongside children drawings from the Terezín Ghetto. Did you know that Hitler actually protected the Jewish Quarter? For a malevolent purpose... We will talk also about this.
I am professional tour guide and studied historian. Originally from Slovakia, I've been living in Prague for over 10 years and guiding for over 7 years. I have a professional licence provided by Jewish Museum and city of Prague. There is so much history within the Jewish area that is impossible to digest without a guide. Let me show you how important the Jewish community was in the medieval times and what had to suffer during WW2.
