Description

Explore the dark side of Prague's history as you step back in time and visit a former 18th-century Austrian fortress with a shocking past. Terezín became a place of grief during the blood-filled years of WWII. Analyse the grim realities of this concentration camp memorial on a full-day tour.

After a short bus journey from Prague, Terezín comes into sight. Your knowledgeable guide narrates the history of this poignant monument, once a proud military fortress and garrison town, later a refugee centre for Czechs escaping Adolf Hitler's seizure, then a Gestapo prison and finally a deportation camp where trains departed for Auschwitz. The history of this place is filled with heaviness and death.

There are tales of hope too, as you listen to some prisoners' stories about secret celebrations of culture and faith and admire the triumph of human resilience in the face of extreme adversity. Reflect on an emotive day as you walk past the different memorials and the often hidden traces of the former ghetto before returning to Prague.

The guide was good, friendly, and knowledgeable; but felt rushed. A few people fell behind in the walks and it seemed there was more material than time. Id suggest either shortening the material or, even better, lengthening the tour.
