Jewish Sights

Numerous sights will remind the visitor of the rich history of the Jewish population in the region – Jewish cemeteries, museums, partly preserved ghettos and synagogues.

The best known sight is indisputably the Great Synagogue in Plzeň built in 1893, the second largest in Europe and third in the world. The synagogue in Radnice is associated with the name of rabbi Issak Mayer Wise-Weise, the founder of the Reform Judaism movement in America. Other interesting Jewish sights include the Baroque synagogue and museum in the Jewish quarter and a Jewish cemetery in Kasejovice, the Jewish cemetery in Rabštejn nad Střelou, the Jewish merchant house in Spálené Poříčí and the Šimon Adler museum at Dobrá Voda near Hartmanice.
