Let's go with us for a stroll around synagogues and hear the story of Prague Jewish community, at its time the biggest in Europe, let's try to understand why this nation has such a sad destiny on one hand, on the other very strong ability to rise up again and again... We'll walk past the synagogues, Old Jewish school, unique jewish clock and peaceful cemetery, full of secrets.. Let's compare the documentary pictures from 19th century, as Jewish quarter use to have very interesting structure...

FRANZ KAFKA – had lived between 3 different worlds – Germans, Jews, Czechs – moved many times in his short life, we'll show you the places, which influenced his writing and will describe the inspirative atmosphere of the city at the beginning of 20th century – shortly with his words: Prague doesn't let go, either of us.
