Overview

The Jewish cemetery is an historic site of great significance. It is the resting place for some 40,000 persons, including a number of prominent rabbis and scholars. The most visited grave is that of the Chief Rabbi of Prague, Ezechiel Landau (1713-1793), also known by the name Noda bi-Yehuda. In the early 1960s it was mostly discontinued and converted into a park.

Seeing the cemetery in the old jewish quarter is like stepping back in time. I recommend the audio guide, it will tell you about the stones and symbols you see on the stones and you will get a feel for life hundreds of years ago!

The jewisch cemetery offers an unxpected, even jarring experience with its thousands of tombstones seemingly jutting at the oddest angles from the ground. There are estimates that this small plot of land is the final resting place for about 100,000 people burried here on top...More

Go there and walk through, it is not the beauty of the cemetery, it is all 100's of years back in history on one spot.
