Karlovy Vary’s Jewish cemetery isn’t as old as Prague’s for instance. This is because Jews started moving to the town in droves in the 19th century.
It was established in 1896 and lies adjacent to the municipal cemetery on a slight incline. There are around 700 gravestones, including those belonging to the family of Ludwig Moser and the father of Richard Feder, who was Czech chief rabbi in the second half of the 20th century. It is also the last resting place of many spa guests from various corners of the globe. At the cemetery you will also find a ceremonial hall in the Moorish-Oriental style converted for living purposes, as well as a memorial to soldiers who fell during WWI.
