DescriptionDo not miss one of Prague's jewels: The Jewish Quarter, its synagogues and its historic cemetery. Founded in the 10 th century, the Jewish quarter after suffering a pogrom became the first walled ghetto. In the thirteenth century would be built what is now the oldest synagogue conserved and three centuries later would begin its period of greatest prosperity under the government of Mayor Maisel. From the 15 th to the 18 th century, the cemetery was used, where more than 60,000 tombs are conserved. In 19 th century would be renamed like Josefov and in the 20 th century would be saved of the Nazi occupation because these wanted to turn it into a museum of 'the race disappeared'.
