When we came across this Cemetery, it was very obvious there was great history behind it. We were so moved by what we saw, we immediately went online to look up the History:
The Old Jewish Cemetery is among the oldest surviving Jewish burial grounds in the world and along with the Old-New Synagogue, it is the most important site in the Prague Jewish Town.
"Each crooked tombstone in the third oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe tells a story, crying out its own eerie song. There are stories of pogroms, fires and floods. Lavish tombstones speak of the golden days in the 16th century Renaissance, when Emperor Rudolph II ruled. And do not forget the tales about the Jews defending Prague against the Swedes in 1648, during the Thirty Years' War. Yes, there are many stories that these 12,000 tombstones have to tell".
I would label this "a must-see".
