From the Rudolfinum, passing by the building of the Museum of Applied Arts, we will go to the Pinkas Synagogue, a Holocaust memorial. The names of the nearly 80,000 Czech and Moravian Jews who were victims of the Nazi regime were handwritten here.
We will continue our Prague Jewish Quarter Tour through the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague, one of the oldest cemeteries, dating from the 15th century. Then we will enter the Klaus synagogue and the old Chevra kadisha room.
We will hear about Jewish customs and traditions, also related to funerals. Later we will go to the Maisel Synagogue. On the way you will hear about the Golem, a being made of clay, alive, but without intelligence, created as an aid to the inhabitants of the place.
In the Maisel synagogue, we will discover historical data about the Jews in Bohemia until the 18th century. We will leave the Ashkenazi Jewish area by crossing the street of Paris, headquarters of the fashion stores, thus we will enter the Sephardic Jewish area, to visit the Spanish synagogue. In this impressive Mudejar-style building, the exhibition on the history of the local Jews continues.
