Find out more about Josefov

Nestled in a pocket-sized enclave between Old Town and the Vlatava River, Prague’s Jewish Quarter (Josefov) showcases the town’s most tragic history together with the irrepressible spirit of its people. Created as a ghetto in the 13th century, the area suffered greatly during WWII before recovering to become one of Prague’s most celebrated districts. Its harrowing history and inspirational rebirth are memorialized in its many museums and synagogues, meaning visitors are rewarded with a fascinating glimpse into one of Prague’s most intriguing neighborhoods.

Hotels in Josefov


Nowadays, the Jewish Quarter is renowned for the air of exclusivity that permeates its elegant streets. The palatial Four Seasons Hotel Prague is just one of several great 5-star hotels in the Jewish Quarter and boasts dazzling vistas of the river and Prague Castle, while the luxurious InterContinental Prague also offers travelers stunning views of its surroundings from the rooftop terrace. Those seeking more affordable accommodation in Josefov should consider the highly rated Apartments Dusní. With their spacious suites and comprehensive self-catering facilities, these apartments in the Jewish Quarter are perfect for larger groups.

Things to see in Josefov


The Jewish Quarter is famed for its many synagogues, the most notable being the Old-New Synagogue, which was built in 1270 and is the oldest synagogue in Europe. The more modern Spanish Synagogue, with its stylized stained glass and unique Oriental motifs, is also a major highlight. For some solemn sightseeing, visit the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Pinkas Synagogue, whose walls are covered with the names of 77,000 Jews who perished during the Holocaust. Josefov was also the birthplace of Franz Kafka, so a photo with the fittingly bizarre statue located near the writer’s former residence is essential. A stroll down Parizska, Prague’s most exclusive shopping street, allows you to admire the intricate Bohemian crystalwork on offer. Afterward, satisfy your appetite in the area’s oldest kosher restaurant, the highly-acclaimed King Solomon on neighboring Siroka, and sample mouthwatering specialties like golden chicken broth or Hungarian-style game goulash.

Good for history and art lovers


Like most districts in Prague, the meandering cobblestone streets of the Jewish Quarter offer history enthusiasts a wealth of treasures. Given its inhabitants’ tragic past, the beautiful façades of Josefov’s buildings hide a past more painful and nuanced than most other neighborhoods in the city. As well as being a feast for the eyes, the district’s many surviving synagogues are a testament to the faith of its residents and to Prague’s enduring beauty. Another must-see spot is the Old Jewish Cemetery, an important historical monument that’s one of the oldest of its kind in Europe. A guided walking tour around the neighborhood is highly recommendable for history and art buffs who want to fully delve into its past.

How to get to Josefov


To get to the Jewish Quarter from the airport in Prague, catch the 119 bus to Nadrazi Veleslavin (remembering to validate your ticket in the machine onboard!) and then take the A metro to Staromestska. This stop is just a 2-minute walk from the center of Josefov. Taxis or shuttles are affordable alternatives. Getting around the Jewish Quarter and the surrounding districts is best done on foot; its charming medieval streets and compact size makes walking a pleasure. For those who wish to travel a little further afield, Josefov is served by multiple tram lines at the Pravnicka Fakulta and Staromestska stops.
