Kolín was once home to Bohemia’s second largest Jewish community, after Prague, and a religious community organization existed here – against the odds of Holocaust and communism – until the 1970‘s. Today, the significant part of the historical core is represented by a former Jewish ghetto, with a large baroque synagogue, rabbinical houses, narrow ghetto lanes and two ancient Jewish cemeteries from the 1400’s.
Čáslav is an old royal town, once a stronghold of the Hussite military warlord, Jan Žižka. A short stopover here allows us to peek into a magnificent art noveau synagogue, completed in 1899 by the famous Austro-Hungarian court architect, Wilhelm Stiassny, who also designed the Jubilee Temple in Prague and the Leopoldstätter Temple in Vienna.
