Maisl, one of the richest merchants in Prague, had lent the emperor money for his war against the Turks. He used his fortune, which according to legend he acquired from wood elves as a young pauper, to build the synagogue, pave the streets of the Jewish Town, build a hospital and enlarge the cemetery.

Reconstruction: Maisel Synagogue

The Maisel Synagogue was built as a grand structure, fitted out with valuable ritual objects. When it was built it would have been the largest synagogue in Prague, but since then it has been rebuilt several times and reduced in size. Its current appearence dates from the turn of the 19th century when it was given a neo-Gothic facelift by architect J.M. Weltmüller.

During the Nazi occupation the synagogue served as a store for confiscated Jewish property. Today it houses a collection of liturgical objects belonging to the Jewish Museum, which mainly originate from that confiscated property.

Permanent exhibition:

History of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia from the beginning of colonization till the beginning of emancipation.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (unknown)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
