Although abundantly dressed in hundreds of Gothic like blocks and layered with century old figures, this historical site does not fall short of mystery and intrigue.

The Old Jewish Cemetery located in Josefov in Prague was built in the 1400's. Many of the inhabitants of the burial grounds were residents in the ghetto like Jewish Quarter. They were segregated and forced to reside there under the strict institution of the Christian authorities.
