The namesake of Precious Legacy Tours comes as the result of 15 years of work by Mark. E Talisman, formerly the Congressional aide and the director of the Washington Action Office of the Council of Jewish Federations. His hard work recovering thousands of Jewish artifacts from the then Soviet Czechoslovakia gave an incredible overview of the Jewish legacy and Czechoslovak history. It was with Mark’s kind permission we use this name, as an attempt to continue some of the work he started.

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. The Hradcany Castle complex is one example of a breath-taking attraction of historical greatness. Once the seat of Bohemian kings and the Holy Roman Empire, today it holds the office of the Czech President. On the grounds of the castle is ‘Golden Lane‘, an old cobblestone street dividing rows of sixteenth-century townhouses, where once lived soothsayers and alchemists, as well as writer Franz Kafka (The Metamorphosis). Prague offers many additional sites of historical interest and old-world charm, as well as many terrific collections and museums.
