About Prague 01 Josefov

Josefov contains the remains of the once thriving Jewish ghetto – half a dozen synagogues, the town hall, a ceremonial hall and the cluttered Jewish cemetery. But Josefov is also a trendy neighborhood. Parizska Avenue, Prague's answer to the Champs-Élysées, is bordered by eye-catching buildings festooned with flamboyant Art Nouveau details. Cocktail bars brush shoulders with designer brand stores. Side streets brim with voguish boutiques of Czech fashion designers.
