This is not your average concentration camp. People still live fully functional lives on the property (not in the museum, obviously) but in and around the former camp. Of course, it's most famous history is in WWII, but Terezin also holds fame as the prison that held Gavrio Principe. Unfortunately, there is nothing about that anywhere on the property.

Absolutely excellent especially for those that already have a knowledge of the holocaust. Pavel is an informative, knowldedgable guy who can give the information over in an interesting way.

We arrived at Terezin at the beginning of the morning, at stayed till 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The atmosphere of the city is quite spooky, as there were not many people outside. The museums were impressive and visiting Terezin is absolutely recommended when you stay at Prague for a couple of days. The Jewish parts in the city, compared... More

I took a day trip out of Prague. The fortress at Terezin was originally built by the Austro-Hungarians for protection from the Prussians and at one time housed the assassin of Archduke Ferdinand. But it is best known as Theresinstadt - the Nazi "heaven" ghetto that served as a transit camp for those Jews enroute to Auschwitz and other death/work... More

My husband and I took an all day trip to Terezin just before the New Year. We went on a van tour with about 6 other people. It was an international group..all spoke English. We had gone to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC last March and saw the display about Terezin and decided to go there on our next... More

Terezin is a concentration camp outside of Prague. Pavel Batel is compassionate, informed and passionate about his subject. It seems like he has made Terezin his life's work and he has written extensively about the brutality and history at this concentration camp (as well as the small fortress which is nearby). Terezin is spread out and doesn't look like much... More

My husband, I visited Terzin and the small fortress this week and was greeted with a truly fascinating experience during a long weekend to Prague. Had I not hired a tour guide I would not have realised that Terezin was, in fact, the town and the small fortress was in addition to it the prison used during the nazi occupation... More

A very big reality shock as you enter Terezin. We entered from the rear so had to walk through the town part first. Was insane to see people living in these buildings! The town is free to enter but entry fee is required for the camp. they also charge you a fee to take photos. Although I didn't pay this... More
