We will also visit the Jewish cemetery, which dates back to beginning of 15th century, and within its walls contain some key figures not only in the history of Josefov, but in all of Central Europe. On this tour, we will explore the trial and tribulations everyday life in the Jewish Quarter here in Prague. In the Jewish Museum, we will take in an extensive collection of Judaic artifacts, including manuscripts, silver, textiles, glass, and various other priceless treasures.
