  • From Prague: Terezin Concentration Camp Guided Tour

    2. From Prague: Terezin Concentration Camp Guided Tour

    Terezin is located approximately ninety miles north of Prague and just south of Litomerice. The town was built in 1780 by Emperor Joseph II of Austria and named after his mother, Empress Maria Theresa. Terezin consisted of two fortresses. The Big Fortress was surrounded by ramparts and contained a barracks. However, Terezin had not been used as a fortress since 1882 and had become a garrison town, which was almost entirely separated from the rest of the countryside.

These workers made up the Aufbaukommando (construction detail), later known in the camp as AK1 and AK2. These men were sent to transform the garrison town into a camp.

based on 4,030 reviews

Enjoyed the walk up to the castle, lots of fun shops along the way. The castle tour is very well presented, each tour guide waits for the previous guide to move to the next room and close the door before they start their explanation of the room you are in, nice to not see guides having to talk over each other. Had excellent food on the way back down from the castle. The horse carriage is a great option to get up to the castle for those not wanting to make the hike up the hill. Driver was great getting us to and from Prague on schedule and safely.

Transportation was very good not crowded. On our way, our guide gave us information about our location and our destination. Because the drive was long, he ensured that we had enough time to stretch our legs and use facilities. Our walk in ceske budejovice was very pleasant and informative. The lunch in ceske kimlov was delicious. As far as the tour goes, Pavel continued to be thoughtful, taking us to great photo spots and informative. The sights and history was amazing. Pavel was also very contentious about keeping us together
