What to expect

Terezín was meant to defend the Czech Republic and Prague from aggressive Prussians. It was so precisely designed that nobody even dared to siege it. That’s why you can nowadays explore more than 60 kilometers of its defense tunnels and hidden mine chambers. Get to know from your guide how the system worked and how this marvelous piece of engineering could turn into a deadly trap.

After discovering its eminent past we’ll dig into the dark history of the 20th century when Terezín was used as a Jewish ghetto and a labor camp, as well as Gestapo prison. Over 150 000 people went through the ghetto and only 35 000 of them survived to the end of the war. Learn how people lived and worked inside the ghetto and have exclusive access to recently discovered messages they left behind.

You will visit also a former Gestapo prison in Small Fortress, where political enemies of Nazi Germany were kept. Every fourth person who went through had never seen the end of the war, dying of horrible conditions, malnutrition or simply being executed. Get to know what life was like for prisoners as well as their guards. Terezín is an experience you’ll never forget.
