The Jewish community in Karlovy Vary significantly contributed to the development of the spa town. Almost 10 % of the town inhabitants were of Jewish descent. Today, the only living Jewish community in the region may be found in Karlovy Vary. It takes care of the local cemetery with the ceremonial hall from the 19th century that both continue to serve their purpose. Some 700 tombstones may be found in the cemetery.

Numerous spa guests from different countries are buried there. You may also find the tomb of the founder of the world renowned Moser Glassworks, Ludwig Löwi Moser.
