Tour description provided by Viator

Join a Host to explore Prague’s Jewish Quarter, also known as Josefov after the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II who finally gave its residents equal rights as citizens of Prague in 1850. This pocket of the city has so much history and culture to discover, and with your Host you’ll be able to go beyond simply seeing its landmarks. Today, the quarter is known as Josefov, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it warrants much more than a quick stroll through. You’ll see the spectacular architecture of the five synagogues which are at the heart of the quarter’s history and spirit, and learn the history of the area’s painful past which will give you greater appreciation for your surroundings. Within 24 hours of your booking, we will contact you to find out about your interests so we can assign a like-minded host who will create a bespoke experience for you. Your Host will suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place, but you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
