The small fortress and the big fortress really need a whole day to visit them both and explore the effects of what happened there. I squeezed it all into one afternoon, but didn't see it all. The small fortress is devastating and leaves you feeling hollow and pained by all that happened there. The buildings themselves are impressive and well... More

Well I booked via a "tour" and possibly wasn't the best thing to do... Whilst still interesting you don't really get the time to explore! So I can't really give this a great review... Go alone and explore it all... 1000's people died here or kept before death..! A real eye opener to the mistreatment of Jews! I bought a... More

Can't say it was enjoyable as it's a devastating reminder of the history of the way the Jews were treated over the years. Like previous reviewers we made our own way there on public transport from Prague. The bus only takes 50 minutes to get there and once you have arrived you can spend the whole day between the ghetto... More

Took this tour as a family with my two girls and was incredibly moved by the narrative of the tour guide. If there was to be any criticism of the tour in any way, it was the length of time allowed in the museum and especially the art gallery which was just stunning. All in all, if you are in... More

We decided to visit terezin , what a harrowing place to visit but well worth a trip . You cant begin to imagine the depravity and cruelty the Jews and other prisoners encountered at the hands of the Germans . We decided to save ourselves some money and do this trip by public transport rather than using 1 of the... More

We visited on our own, not wanting to spend the money the tour company's wanted. Having read the reviews about the tour companies there seemed to be a theme of people feeling rushed and we did not want this. We caught the 8am bus from stand number 7 at Holesovic, in Prague, the cost 88 ck each, each way. We... More

A friend and I went to Terezin with Sandemans New Prague Tours in late January 2014. It was a freezing, snowy day, which added to the gloom and mood of the town and its history. Our guide was Filip, a young Czech guy with a wealth of knowledge. It was interesting to compare Terezin to Auschwitz, as they are very... More

Terezin was initially set up by the Nazis as a holding area for jews prior to the decision for elimination. the town is about 45v miles north of Prague and can be reached quite easily by taking the Metro C to the Nadrazi Holesovice station. There is non-city bus station located just outside the metro station. the bus ride takes... More

We decided against the expensive guided tour but took the bus (50 minutes in a modern coach) and started at the very comprehensive museum (which is right by the bus stop) The museum tour started with a 30 minute English film about the history of the site - which was very informative. The place itself is not one for children... More
