What people say

"This area used to be the Jewish Quarter (ghetto), which transformed into a impoverished neighborhood after its abolition in the mid-19th century. As part of the Prague revitalization, it was demolished and replaced with new buildings. Only the most significant Jewish landmarks were preserved, such as the Old-New Synagogue, some other synagogues, the old cemetery, and the town hall."
"Prague's Jewish Quarter, also known as Josefov, is a poignant reminder of the city's Jewish history. Explore the well-preserved synagogues, including the Maisel Synagogue, the Spanish Synagogue, and the Pinkas Synagogue, adorned with the names of Holocaust victims. The haunting beauty of the Old Jewish Cemetery is also worth a visit."
"The municipal district of Josefov is the smallest cadastral territory of Prague that surrounds the Old Town. Until 1850, Josefov was called the Jewish Town, even earlier this part was called the Jewish Ghetto. Today it is a well-preserved complex of important Jewish monuments of European importance."
