Old Jewish Cemetery (Starý židovský hřbitov)
In the center of Prague's old Jewish Quarter lies a cemetery dating to the first half of the 15th century. The cemetery contains about 12,000 tombstones, including those of poet Avigdor Karo, astronomer David Gans, and Rabbi Loew, who is important in Jewish mythology because of his association with the legend of Golem. A pleasant day-trip, the cemetery also serves as a poignant reminder of the historical importance of Jews in Prague. The cemetery is operated by the Jewish Museum in Prague .
