Stary zidovsky Hrbitov, Prague

3.6
A place as mysterious as it is historically significant, Stary zidovsky Hrbitov is the largest Jewish graveyard in Europe. Founded in the 15th century by King Ottokar II of Bohemia, the cemetery is a major landmark of the city's old Jewish quarter. Although the burial ground contains some 12,000 visible tombstones, the exact number of people buried here remains uncertain, as the cemetery contains as many as 20 layers of graves laid one on top of the other. The oldest preserved tombstone dates back to 1439, and it belongs to a prominent poet and rabbi named Avigdor Kara.

  • A beautiful place, filled with history. It's very peaceful and really not too busy (beginning of september).
