Jewish Quarter & Museum Private Walking Tour

In this three-hour walking tour, you will explore the long and fascinating history of Jewish people in Prague, dating from the tenth century, through the atrocities of World War II, up to the present day. Located in the heart of Prague’s Old Town, the Jewish Ghetto is a truly eye-opening journey into the heart of medieval European history.
 
Throughout your tour, you will gain a greater appreciation of the struggles the Jewish community has faced in central Europe and will understand how in the 19th century, Jewish hardship would eventually become woven into the intellectual movement of Prague. It is no surprise that authors native to Prague, including Franz Kafka, would become inspired by prevailing themes of suffering and hardship. Hopefully, by the end of this tour, you will feel better acquainted with the rich and complex history of the Jewish community in Europe, as well as with the fascinating forces behind Prague’s exciting cultural scene.
