Holding great historical significance, Josefov was the place of the former Jewish Ghetto, standing tall as the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe till date. The place has narrow streets filled with kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores and gift shops. This is one place to stay in Prague that helps you traverse back in time to one of the most heinous crimes against humanity. Accommodations cater to all pocket sizes.
