Prague: Jewish Quarter, Střelecký Island and New National Museum / December 2017

Jewish Quarter

The Jewish Quarter in Prague, known as Josefov, is located between the Old Town Square and the Vltava River.

Over the centuries, with Jews banned from living anywhere else in Prague, and with new arrivals expelled from Moravia, Germany, Austria and Spain joining them, more and more people were crowded in.

The Jewish Quarter has six synagogues, including the Spanish Synagogue and Old-New Synagogue, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall, and the Old Jewish Cemetery, the most remarkable of its kind in Europe.

Prague, Czech Republic / June 2017

I have been to Prague four or five times in my life so far, but every experience with this city is different. Prague is always great, every time I seem to explore more and deeper.

This time is was special occasion – my hen do ! with a couple of friends.

We went to the city centre at night, clubbed until dawn….

Later on (after few hours of sleep) we went to the city centre again to admire it in a daylight. My MUST SEE attractions this time were:

  • to climb an Old Clock Tower and have a view on Old city from above
  • to visit Golden Lane

Unfortunately, the tower was being renovated and we just had selfie with an Astronomical Clock.

At the end of the day, we reached the Castle and Golden Lane. Weather was lovely that day: clear sky and over 30 degrees !
