Meet your guide in the city center, and walk to the 13th-century Old-New Synagogue. Admire the exterior of the still-active synagogue, said to be Europe’s oldest north of the Alps. Then, go to the Pinkas Synagogue to discover a hallowed museum dedicated to the Czech victims of the Holocaust. See a heart-wrenching exhibition of drawings by the children of the Terezin Ghetto.
Next, go the Klausen Synagogue to see its permanent collection regarding the Maharal of Prague, along with exhibits relating to everyday Jewish life and rituals. Discover an extensive collection of Judaica at the Maisel Synagogue, and end at the newly restored Moorish-inspired Spanish Synagogue.
