Take a private small-group tour from Prague to Terezín, which was built in the 1790s by Habsburg Emperor Joseph II as a fortress to guard the Northern approaches to the Bohemian heartlands.
Your tour will start at your hotel in Prague from where your guide takes you on a 45-minute drive to Terezin.
Learn about the small fortress, which forms part of the Terezín fortification system and was used in World War II as a prison and place of punishment for both military and political prisoners. As a concentration, transit camp and a ghetto, it was used for Jews from the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, and later also from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark and Slovakia.
You will see many artifacts in the museum of Terezin Concentration Camp, such as a collage of drawings by children imprisoned at the camp and the propaganda movie, which was produced by the Nazis to present Terezin as a "gift" to the Jews from Hitler.
You will also be able to enter the gate of the Terezin concentration camp Small Fortress, a former Gestapo prison. Walk through and learn about the prison barracks, the execution grounds where firing squads murdered innocent people, the workshops, the dark solitary confinement cells and a cemetery that was built after the war. At the end of your Terezin visit, you will be taken back to your hotel in Prague.
