The cemetery is located on the southeastern edge of the city between Nádražní and Rybniční streets. It was founded by the Chewra-Kadischa brotherhood in the 16th century. The cemetery was modernized in 1886 and a new ceremonial hall was added in 1902.

During the Second World War, the cemetery was destroyed by the Nazis and it also suffered during the bombing of the city in 1945. Currently, there  are around 600 gravestones on an area of ​​approximately 5,832 m 2 . Primarily baroque and classicist, otherwise also modern. A surprising discovery was made during the rescue work . The tombstone of probably the most famous native was found – Rafael Konig , who was the first Jew in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy who received permission from the emperor to run a business and live outside the ghetto and to use the title of Master . His intact tombstone, including a likeness, was accidentally discovered during rescue work at the Jewish cemetery on Nádražní Street in 1999.
