Tour Josefov, the Jewish quarter of Prague, with an expert guide and visit the Alt-Neu Synagogue, preserved since the 13th century and the spiritual center of the Jewish community in Prague; the Maisel Synagogue, home to a large collection of silverware, previously confiscated from Jewish families by the Nazis; the neo-Moorish Spanish Synagogue, the Pinkas Synagogue where the walls inside are covered with the names of 77,297 Jewish Holocaust victims from Bohemia and Moravia; Klausen Synagogue, a Judaic Baroque building which houses a permanent exhibition showing Jewish customs and traditions and next door is the Ceremonial Hall.
