Full description
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. Terezin changed dramatically when the Nazis renamed it Theresienstadt and sent the first Jewish transports there in November 1941. 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. These workers transformed the town, that in 1940 held approximately 7,000 residents, into a concentration camp which held about 35,000 to 60,000 people. With your certified guide, you will be guided through the Terezin concentration camp, learning about the terrible history of this place. The tour visits most places of significance at the site. Afterwards, you will return to Prague.

A fantastic tour with an amazing guide, Constantine picked us up and was a wealth of information about Prague and the concentration camp. He was very polite and the the camp was an amazing experience the tour guide Marc was very helpful and patient as I was walking slowly. An amazing experience overall and couldn’t recommend more.

We only stayed in Prague for a short time, but we really wanted to see this place. It was worth it!! From the driver who presented us all the important aspects from Prague to Terezin, until the guided tour inside the concentration camp. The whole experience was fascinating! However, it is a sad memory of our history, but everyone should be aware of it…

This was a very interesting trip on a lesser known area of WWII atrocities. It was very enlightening. There was a driver that took us from central Prague and drove us in a comfortable van to Terezin. He gave us a very thorough overview of the grounds and surrounding are and then we were handed off to another guide that filled us in on the details of the camp. There was quite a bit of walking, fyi. Very interesting.
