During the tour of the Jewish Quarter in Prague, you will learn more about the history of our neighbors, who have always formed an integral part of our society, a distinctive culture and historical heritage. Their destinies and stories. Why the ghetto was created in the past, how everyday life lived in them. What Jews were allowed, what they were not allowed or, on the contrary, had to do or endure, unlike the majority population. You will learn how the Jewish quarter has changed its face, what slum clearance means and what is left of the ghetto to this day. You will learn the troubled fate of Jews during the 20th century and why barely several thousand of them live in our country today.
