About the tour

Welcome to Prague Jewish Quarter, a neighborhood that will enchant you with its beautiful architecture and captivating stories. With six synagogues left intact after the tumultuous events of World War II, and the history of Jewish community reaching back as far as the 10th century, this picturesque part of our city is a must-see upon your visit to Prague. During this tour we will explore the monuments of Josefov and learn the stories connected to the area - including the reason why it is called that way. Meet the creator of golem and find out where one would look for the remains of this mythical creature made of clay. Follow the footsteps of the most prominent members of the Jewish community in Prague and learn the stories of fortune, bravery and wisdom. Together we will take a stroll through the history of the Jewish Quarter and discover places like the Old Jewish Cemetery, Spanish Synagogue, Jewish Quarter Town Hall and more - we can’t wait for you to join us!

Meet your local guide


If you’re looking for proof that a visit to Prague can change your life, ask Johanka. Almost a decade ago she came to Prague for a semester of studies, and… she just never left. After graduating in Czech Language and Literature, she dedicated her life to understanding and experiencing the Czech lifestyle with all the senses - starting with a career in a brewery. That being said - do not hesitate to ask her tough beer-related questions! Her love of Prague didn’t let her stop just there, and the passion for sharing knowledge soon took over: for the past few years Johanka has been walking the cobblestone-clad streets of Prague as a tour guide. Her romance with this beautiful city continues, as she claims to fall in love with Prague every day over and over again.

Johanka has been guiding since Mar 2018

Unfortunately I was 18 or 19 mins late getting to Prague tour. I enjoyed your descriptions and history so much, Johanka. Paid a visit to Prague in 1999, stayed in Hotel U Pava not far from Charles Bridge. Thank you for your most interesting virtual visit. Good wishes, Mary H
