The Jewish Quarter and the Basilica of St. Prokop
The ensemble of the Jewish Quarter and the Basilica provides a unique example of the close ties between Christian and Jewish culture from medieval times until the 20th century. The preserved quarter is comprised of 123 houses, narrow streets, public passages, porches, 2 synagogues and the cementery. The construction of the Basilica of St. Prokop, originally part of the Benedictine monastery dating from the 13th century, was influenced by styles and patterns that originated from the western Europe. Its romanesque gotic style belongs to the jewels of the medieval Europe architecture.
