There are many touring agencies in the beautiful city of Prague but none like the Precious Legacy Tours. Here is a presentation of our agency, activity and values, as well as of the amazing city we have the chance to visit with you on a daily basis !
WHAT WE ARE?
The Precious Legacy Tours is a touring agency specialized in Jewish history and Jewish tours in central and eastern Europe.
Precious Legacy Tours is respectfully named after the international Jewish Exhibition, “The Precious Legacy Exhibit”. This special exhibition of Czech Judaica, including art, religious objects, and personal items, travelled through Israel, The United States, Canada and Australia in 1983, allowing millions of people in these locations to see, and to learn from, this extraordinary exhibition.
The Czech Republic boasts one of the largest and most significant collections of Judaica in the world. This extensive collection of items, preserved by the Prague Jewish Museum after Nazi confiscation during World War II, now serves to document Jewish life in the Czech region, one of the oldest continuous Jewish communities in Europe. It is interesting that the Nazis actually condoned the preservation of these items. They considered them artifacts representing what Hitler hoped would be an extinct race.
These objects, then, also testify to the tragic and catastrophic dimension of European Jewish life, which culminated in the Holocaust.

WHAT ABOUT PRAGUE ?
To visit Prague is to step back into centuries-old history and to find oneself among outstanding wonders of preservation. The ‘Golden City’s’ ancient architecture and alluring designs, unique to this part of the world, have no rivals. Prague is a cherished destination for millions of people who come here each year to see the famous Jewish Quarter, founded over a millennium ago!
Guests who visit the Jewish Quarter can see in person the oldest continuously used synagogue north of the Alps, and a cemetery of impossibly stacked tombstones, each one older than the next, an amazing testament to the past. An important feature of the Jewish Quarter is The Jewish Museum, a complex of four former synagogues housing one of the world’s largest collections of Judaica – our Precious Legacy.
There is so much to see and experience in Prague, both for learning about history and for simply treating the senses. Prague offers many additional sites of historical interest and old-world charm, as well as many terrific collections and museums.
