As you head to the old Jewish Quarter (once the largest Jewish settlement in Europe) you will learn about the turbulent history of Jewish people in the Czech Republic. Afterward you will view the well-preserved Jewish monuments – six historic synagogues, the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Jewish Town Hall. Your guide will unveil some of Jewish Town’s old stories and legends connected to this specific part of Prague, such as the legend about the Golem. Walk in the footsteps of Franz Kafka and experience the environment that shaped this Jewish writer who is regarded as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century.
After short break in a coffee shop where you can relax over a cup of coffee and delicious cake, continue to Old Town Square, an old marketplace, originally founded in the 11th century. This beautiful square is dominated by the splendid gothic Church of Our Lady Before Týn, the monumental Church of St. Nicholas, and the medieval Old Town Hall with the famous Astronomical Clock which has been measuring time for over six centuries. If time remains, our guide will lead you through the streets lined with picturesque buildings and churches. You will have a taste of more of the countless sights and monuments in Old Town, be it Mozart’s favourite Estates Theatre, the medieval college of Prague University or the jewel of Cubist architecture – the Black Madonna House.
