Plenty of other people have already described their feelings about the Terezin memorial and I don't want to say the exact same thing. It is a very sobering experience and fascinating for anyone interested in World War II. I was always going to go to visit Terezin, but could not decide whether I would 'miss out' on much if I...

I recommend Pavel Batel to everybody who wants to experience Terezin deeply as our group did. Knowledge and his narration skills are just outstanding and everything about him on Tripadvisor is for real. Few weeks past and we still are talking about Terezin and Pavel. We traveled back in time with him. Unforgettable experience!

Theresienstadt, built in the late 18th century and named after the Austrian Arch-Duchess Maria Theresa, was originally intended to serve as a fort, but by the late 19th century it was used to house political and military prisoners. The most famous of these inmates prior to WW II was the tubercular Gavrilo Princep, who was incarcerated here after assassinating Arch-Duke... More

terezin is a unchanged monument to the atrocities of war on Jews. It's very somber, there are few shops for folk that live there. There is a heck of a lot to see. The accommodation, huge shower rooms and when you read about what happened there! It's so sad. The Jews were kept in ever smaller plots here, where there's... More

Prague is a fantastic city- there is so much to do and see and to enjoy yourself. However, it is also important to remember the important historical events- both recent and not-so-recent, that have occurred in the past. During this trip to Prague I made it a point to visit some of the sites outside of the city. Since I... More

This was a very good tour if you like this sort of thing which I do. Very emotional to think about how the Nazis tried to get rid of Jews from every country.This is particular was very sad as it looks so normal to you when you look at it except there were walls built around about it and life...

We booked with Viator for this trip and while we thought Terezin itself was definitely worth a visit, we would have preferred a bit more guidance from our tour guide. We were left to look around each of the exhibitions quite independently following a short (but very friendly) introduction and quite often I would have preferred a little more time... More

We have visited Terezin with this excellent and passionate tour guide named Pavel, which I highly recommend. Terezin is a very sad, touching place and I cannot find the words to describe how you feel walking around this ghetto and the concentration camp. It was a strong feeling.. Pavel explained us what happened and where and he is open to... More

We arrived after xmas 2014 in Prague. The second day, we took the tour to Terezin with Pavel Batel. He picked us up at our hotel and we drove in his car to Terezin. It was an unforgettable day, which you can't imagine if you never went to concentration camp or something similar. We were impressed about the knowledge he... More

I recently spent a day at Terezin with Pavel and am very glad that I did. I had never been to a concentration camp before and the experience of being there was unlike any other. Pavel provided information not just about what I was seeing, but also about the surrounding content; he is just as concerned about the why +... More
