You’ll go back in time over 1000 years (figuratively, we haven’t worked out how to do it literally yet) and discover the checkered history of Prague’s Jewish Quarter, known by its locals as Josefov.

You’ll have one of our local Prague hosts by your side as you explore the warren of old lanes and learn a little about the area’s painful past which will give you greater appreciation for your surroundings - which are all a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as it happens.

Discover the spectacular architecture of the Old-New Synagogue (ask them about the name), or indeed any one of the five synagogues which the area is home.

Stroll along the tree-lined Pařížská Street, make a stop at the Old Jewish Cemetery or Museum of Decorative Arts at its border, see the monument of Franz Kafka and hear the local legends of the mysterious Prague Golem.

You’ll inevitably find yourself in one of the many Kosher bakeries in the neighborhood (it happens to all of us), so we recommend trying chocolate babka or rugelach, a stuffed pastry made from cream cheese dough. Not your average history lesson.
