We visited here this week. We paid 75Kc from Holesovice bus station and got off 30-45 minutes later at Terezin. Entrance was cheap, and it got you in all parts of the area. Definitely recommend asking right away when the movie shows in English, and plan on that (I think it was 12:30pm for us). VERY NICE ladies at the... More

Terezin, where thousands were deported - many of them artists of all kinds - was not a "death camp," but a place where many died of disease, mal-nutrition and abuse. It's also a place where the arts flourished (largely for "publicity purposes) - and very moving to see both the LIttle Fortress (prison), the ghetto and the crematorium nearby. It's... More

I went here today and our personal guide was wonderful. I believe that her name was Daniella. She showed us specific rooms and the grounds. She explained everything simply and with great passion. The tour guide is included in the admission and it is well worth the five minutes wait to meet up with her. If you are staying in... More

I think Terezin should be visited if you are in Prague. Sad and horrific but important to see. I toured Terezin with Prague Experience which I found online and it had good reviews. Their website was very explicit and they did follow what they stated in it. However I was disappointed in the overall tour. The guide's knowledge of the... More

We took a tour to Terezin thru our Avalon cruise ship and were very impressed with our local guide Helena and the museum tour that was also included as part of the tour. A propaganda film was made at Terezin and we were were shown it at the museum.

As part of our Jewish Heritage Tour, the Terezin tour was an option. I am glad we decided to ,join this tour with most of our group. This was a sober experience. It's hard to express feelings after a tour like this,when you are just overwhelmed with the fate of the people who were interred here. Stripped of their worldly... More

We paid for a tour of Terezin through a tour company in Prague (I can't remember their name, but there are many from which to choose.) A driver picked us up from our hotel and took us to the bus that actually transported us to Terezin. Our guide on the bus was friendly and spoke great English. On the hour... More

Went with prague experiences who gave a good tour in the relevant languages from our group. For those with disabilities it is mostly flat with a few steps except in the tunnels which have about 10 at the end. It can feel claustrophobic but the tunnels are optional but you can get some fantastic pictures. Very informative, helpful for those... More

My daughter and I went to Terezin with a guide from Wittman Tours. She was knowledgable and sensitive to feelings felt in reliving what those who were forced into this concentration camp experienced. She shared with us the ridiculousness about how those at Terezin were forced to show the International Red Cross that life was fine in Terezin. This experience... More
