The Old Jewish Cemetery

The old Jewish cemetery. Jewish cemetery in Roudnice dates back into the Middle Ages. The first site occupied by local Jews was south of the chateau in an area known as the Horse Market. The first Jewish cemetery, too,was located here. The building of the Capuchin monastery at the beginning of the 17th century led to the force removal of the Jewish residents, who were re-settled in beyond the “Hassa Gate” on the site of what are now Třebízského street and Havlíčkova street. In addition to house, a synagogue, school and spital were built here, and a new cemetery was established with valuable Renaissance, Baroque and Neo-Classical headstones. At the same time, several gravestones from the abrogated cemetery near chateau were also brought here.
