Old Jewish Cemetery

The crumbling image of the Old Jewish Cemetery is a moving memorial to Prague’s once considerable Jewish community. As this was one of few burial sites available to Prague’s Jews, when the plot was full, graves were built up in layers – estimates put the number at about 200,000, with the oldest headstone dating from 1439. The final burial took place in 1787, but stroll through the enclosure and you’ll get a sense of noble lives once lived.
