We used a tour company from Prague that took us on a bus ride to the Terezín concentration camp. The bus was small with no air circulation. When we asked the guide to open the vents to provide some air, we were chastised & told not to ask again as there was a lady on the bus who was cold.... More

It is difficult to list this as an attraction and/or excellent, but I want everyone who visits in this area to see Terezin. As an American, I believe we must work with all nations to prevent anything like this from happening again. Sad to say, atrocities still happen, but knowledge will help. It is important our young people know the... More

The visit here was sombre and made one think of man's inhumanity to man. We had an excellent guide who spoke good English and gave us the cold harsh facts of the history of this settlement. I am pleased to have visited and learned more but because it was such a cruel era, I do not say that I enjoyed... More

We didn't know there was a Nazi concentration camp so close to Prague. But we were told about it before we left. We booked one of the tour buses at Wencellas Square. (You can also book them at Powder Tower.) It's about a 50 minute ride. This was a prison for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The assassin of the Archduke Ferdinand... More

The tour of Terezin will be forever etched in my mind! I was deeply moved by the horrific history of what took place not too long ago! Pavel Bate was an amazing, intelligent and well-informed tour guide! I continue to read the books purchased at Terezin and I am touched by the Jewish people's courage and hope!

Maybe because it is in Czech Republic, i wasn't expecting a museum with all this quality! How unfair... I spent a whole day there and it wasn't too much... A more than complete exhibition: videos, footage, artifacts... Emotionally strong, but you can learn a lot from it. You really should take some time when in Prague and go there! There's... More

I attended a concert of Brundibar in one of the buildings in this city. The choir sang Psalm 23 after and there wasn't a dry in the room. The streets are a little disheveled so this maybe a problem for wheelchairs and the elderly. Up stairs at the main museum is thought provoking. All times to displays about the city... More

This is a visit you will not forget. It's sobering but a place everyone should go to. I went on an afternoon tour from Prague and it wasn't enough time to really see the town. A very knowledgeable local guide with excellent English took us through the small fortress. Seeing the buildings looking as they did in the 1940s, was... More
