Prague is quite a multinational city, and it hosts one of the oldest European Jewish Ghettos. The Jewish people have a very rich history in Prague. These are the Ashkenazi Jews, and there is no other their community which is so large. Even in spite of the fact that today this community is not as numerous as it used to be, there are traces of Jews all over the city; their legacy has survived even the Nazi arbitrary will.
Among all the private tours of Prague this one is especially interesting for the devotees of the Jewish culture and history. By means of this guided tour in Prague you will be able to visit several oldest in Europe synagogues such as the Old-New Synagogue (13th century), the Pinkasova synagoga which nowadays has become the hallowed museum of the holocaust victims. You will find there numerous heart-breaking drawings made by children from the Terezin Ghetto.
There are several more synagogues to visit: the Klausova synagoga, the Maisel Synagogue, which has a rich collection of Judaica, and the last but not the least Spanish Synagogue – a great example of the Moorish Style, which was recently restored. Any private guide in Prague would surely advice you to take a look at the Chevrah Kaddisha building, and of course the Old Jewish Cemetery, which is said to be haunted. It is also considered to be one of the oldest cemeteries in Europe and it attracts millions of tourists each year.
