The Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague is a daunting place with its own history. Located in Josefov, was for over 300 years was the only place where it was to bury the Jews in Prague.
The Jewish cemetery was established in 1439 (and dates the first stone of Avigdor Karo) and, although it was growing over the years, did not extend all currently due and can appreciate its character intact.
Due to lack of space, bodies were buried on top of each other (reaching more than 10 stacks). Today you can see more than 12,000 headstones and is estimated to have buried some 100,000 people.
