The synagogues in Prague are located in one place, in the Jewish Quarter Josefov. It used to be Jewish ghetto, a part of a city that was inhabited by the Jewish community for 800 years. Today it is a monument of culture and suffering of Jewish people.
In this neighborhood, in the small streets, it seems as if time has stopped. Still, there is a modern, urban part, that reflects the modern way of life.
There are six synagogues in Prague:
- The Klausen Synagogue
- The High Synagogue
- The Pinkas Synagogue
- The Maisel Synagogue
- The Old-New Synagogue
- The Spanish Synagogue
All of these are not just religious objects, they are also museums where Jewish tradition, customs and valuable objects can be seen and learn from.
