Having visited Auschwitz-Birkenau a couple of times, we took time out from a birthday celebration in nearby Litomerice to visit Terezin, known as Teresienstadt by the Germans. In stark contrast to the outstanding pleasure we were having in celebrating a close friend's 60th, this really was a sobering experience. The museum in particular is moving, set in the old school...

As i was rating it here, i was wondering how can you actually rate a place like this. All the time i was there all i could think about was that people actually died there. It was a bad and negative vibe going in there, I could feel it when i walked into the rooms (cells) and while visiting the... More

We came on a bus tour with a group from Prague. I've never been to a concentration camp or anything like this before so was not prepared for the emotions that would come to the surface. This place was a transit station but it was a terrible place for the inmates. If you get close, GO and see this place.... More

If you are in or near Prague, you should visit Terezin. A moving experience. Our guide explained the stories of inmates, we visited the museum - another must see . It leaves you wondering, and hoping it never happens again.

we went to terezin for the day (about 6 hours including travelling time) from the metro station at nadrazi holeservice the 1 hour bus ride is 70 k each way and its 210k for entrance to all the various exhibits. It's very moving although I doubt quite on the same level as the concentration camps.

A friend & I took a private tour with Pavel Batel of Terezin Private Tours and we had an intense, intensive and moving experience with Pavel as our guide. The tour began as soon as he picked us up, and as we drove towards Terezin, he gave us the history and background to the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, the origins... More

Full appreciation of Terezin Camp is dependent on the tour guide. We took Best Tour on Sept 8, 2014. It was not a tour, just a driver who provided minimal information. He appeared very disinterested and bored. He dropped us at the small fortress prison camp (1 1/2 hrs). The official English tour was not available (only Finnish/English which he... More

In deciding whether to visit the concentration camp and ghetto on our own or using various tour guide options, we found a lot of great reviews about a tour guide named Pavel Batel. UNBELIEVABLE. To find his info, you need to Google his name and find his website, as he doesn't have a devoted TripAdvisor page yet. We sent him... More

We have brought many groups to Prague and Terezin and hands down the absolute must have guide is our dear tour guide, Pavel Batel. He was passionate, insightful and patient. His material wa gripping and he had a knack for getting along with our students as well, which is SO important when trying to get kids to listen to any... More

Me and my friends conducted unforgettable tour to concentration camp near Prague called Terezin. We had very bad experience with large Jewish company in Josefov-Jewish quarter so we went for small one at this time. It was really worth it! Breathtaking narration of Mr. Pavel Batel made us realise how important is not to forget about own roots. We highly... More
