Josefov is a town quarter, formerly the Jewish ghetto of the town. The quarter is often represented by the flag of Prague's Jewish community, a yellow Magen David (Star of David) on a red field. The ghetto was most prosperous towards the end of the 16th century.
In 1779, Jews were allowed to settle outside of the city, only orthodox and poor Jews remained living there. Most of the quarter was demolished between 1893 and 1913. What was left were only six synagogues, the old cemetery, and the Old Jewish Town Hall (now all part of the Jewish Museum in Prague) ( read more )
