Prague has been one of the most significant cities in European Judaism for many centuries. Alongside notable buildings such as the Old-New Synagogue, the Pinkas Synagogue, the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Jewish Town Hall, there are the stories, myths and legends of the old, mysterious ghetto. These stories about the wise Rabbi Loew, the Golem and wealthy Mordecai Maisel allow us to visualize the long lost world of Jewish Prague.
