Jewish sights closed today

One of the most significant holidays of Jewish calendar is Yom Kippur which means ‘the day of atonement’. This holiday started yesterday with the sunset and follows ten days of repentance after the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah, this year on 22nd September).

Some information appeared that the terrorist threats in Prague may have a connection with this holiday or the Jewish New Year. Since Saturday morning 23rd September Prague faces enhanced security measures, especially in the centre.

Due to this holiday, Jewish Museum, synagogues and Old Jewish Cemetery, which belong to the most visited places in Prague, are closed to public today.
