A visit to the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague's Jewish Quarter will take you on a poignant journey through centuries of Jewish history and culture.  Established in the first half of the 15th century, this sacred burial ground stands as one of the oldest surviving Jewish cemeteries in the world, alongside the esteemed Old-New Synagogue. Recognized by National Geographic magazine as one of the top ten cemeteries to visit globally, the Old Jewish Cemetery holds a revered place in the hearts of visitors and locals alike.

As you step through its weathered gates, you’ll be transported back in time, surrounded by rows upon rows of ancient tombstones that bear witness to generations of Jewish life in Prague. The cemetery's unique history is reflected in its design, with graves layered up to ten deep due to the scarcity of space, resulting in a hauntingly beautiful landscape that speaks volumes about the challenges faced by the Jewish community over the centuries.

Among the approximately 12,000 tombstones scattered throughout the cemetery, you’ll discover the final resting places of notable figures who have left an indelible mark on Jewish history. From the scholar and teacher Rabbi Judah Loew Ben Bezalel, known as the Maharal, to the Renaissance scholar David Gans and the collector of Hebrew manuscripts Rabbi David Oppenheim, each gravestone tells a story of intellectual prowess, cultural richness and enduring legacy.

Whether you come to pay homage to the renowned figures interred here or simply to reflect amidst the tranquil surroundings, the Old Jewish Cemetery offers a transformative experience that will deepen your appreciation for Prague's vibrant Jewish heritage.
