Magnificent experience, we walked a lot, we saw so many things that without the card we probably would have discarded. Public transport is very comfortable, too bad they are not included in the discounts. Gorgeous city Prague.

Marcella turned to us, gave us an interesting and patient insight into the rich Jewish life of Prague. We think back gladly and gratefully.

Very interesting tour guide knowledgeable. Synagogues, cemetery and museum are very worth seeing
