A half day tour to Terezin, a World War II concentration camp and Jewish ghetto located outside Prague.
This tour is part by air-conditioned coach, part on foot.
After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we take a short drive north to the Terezin Memorial. This former garrison town was built at the end of the 18th century by Emperor Joseph II as an ingenious system of military fortresses.
However, when the Nazis invaded the Czech Republic during World War II, they converted this huge area into a concentration camp and a Jewish ghetto.
We take an extensive tour of both the camp and the ghetto, which are eerily preserved in their 1940's state.
Our experienced guide leads us through this sorry episode in the history of Terezin and of humanity in general, but the visit will no doubt leave many unanswered questions in your mind, as to how or why such atrocities can occur.
For refreshments, a coffee shop/restaurant is located on site.
Prague Experience sightseeing tours are in English and another language. They are led by professional, licensed tourist guides and use modern, air-conditioned mini-coaches.
If you require a tour in French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish, please specify on the booking form.
The tour finishes back in Prague at a convenient point in the city centre, near Wenceslas Square.
