It is one of the oldest in Europe, in the middle of the ghetto and was built in 1478: in some areas there are up to 9 layers of burials for a total of 12,000 tombstones from many different styles. The most visited grave is that of Judah Low, a rabbi who according to the legend, began to shape golem to which he gave life or death, according to his liking.

This Old Jewish Cemetery is located in Josefov which is the Jewish Quarter of Prague in the Czech Republic. It was being used since the 15th Century until the year 1787. It is known to be the oldest Jewish... more Cemetery in Europe. Avigdor Kara was the first person to be buried in this cemetery. More than 200,000 residents were buried here and since the cemetery could hold only 10 percent of that amount, the tombs were layered on top of each other. Now, about 12,000 tombstones exist.
