We were on holiday in Prague for a few days and wanted today to visit Terezin. We looked up Tripadvisor and found the name me off their top tour guide - Pavel Battel. We organised with him to meet with us on Friday 27th @ 8.30 am. The tour started the minutes he picked up. We had been to Dachau... More

We arranged a tour of Terezin with Pavel Batel. He is a history major, documentary maker, and expert on Terezin. He shared so much history leading up to WWII and all the events that occurred here. It's an incredibly somber tour but he enriches it with an extraordinary amount of information. I recommend taking this tour. It's so important to... More

It was fairly easy to get to Terezin as a solo traveller. As noted below the hourly bus leaves from stance 7 at Holesovice bus station (next to the metro station) - final destination Litomerice. The fare was 85 crowns and the trip is an hour. The driver will give you change. As you arrive in Terezin you will pass... More

I had special trip arranged by Pavel Batel, he took Anna with him as she is going to do tours on her own when season really starts. Pavel was supervising everything, but Anna was doing really good job. Anna is specialized on Jewish quarter at Prague, but as she is colleague of Pavel and does documentaries with him about Terezin... More

Our day trip tour to Terezin was conducted by Premiant with a tour guide, Albert, who just outstanding. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and very sensitive to the historical importance of the Terezin. A separate tour guide is provided for the site and you are able to see up front the total facility- be sure to take your pictures as you... More

If you are planning to visit Terezin, and if you are spending some time in Prague, try and find a day for a visit, please, please don't go without a guide. Yes, you will see a lot but you will not get the full picture, including full descriptions of what happened and individual stories. We went with Pavel Batel and... More

My wife and I choose to make this visit alone. We got the no 7 bus from Prague and went to th small fort first. It was cheap enough to get in and it was not overly busy. The map you were giving was easy to follow. The camp was well laid out and it certainly made you think about... More

...to everyday life in the concentration camp. His talent for storytelling makes the sad and horrific yet distant and impersonal history facts so close to us. I could really feel how the ghetto life with all the small personal problems looked like. No one can really say what she/he would do in certain situations full of moral and ethic questions,... More

this place is amazing as far as connecting with the horrible past. if you have relatives that went through the holocoust, even if not in Czech Republic, going to this place will help you connect and understand a bit of what went on.

We visited Terezin with our kids ages 12-14. Pavel Batel was our tour guide and he was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of the crazy questions our kids put to him. Terezin could be a very difficult place to visit with young kids but they were fine, especially with a really good guide. The... More
