The Terezin concentration camp is a place haunted by unspeakable loss.
Tens of thousands of innocent Jews from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Denmark were imprisoned here by the Nazis during War World II.
The vast majority of those sent to Terezin never returned.
Your guide will lead you around the camp complex and recount the memories of those who were interned there.

To join the tour please make your way to Republic Square 3 (The yellow kiosk of Prague Sightseeing Tours & Cityrama). From there board an air-conditioned coach for your Terezin Concentration Camp tour.
The small town of Terezin is a 45-minute drive outside of Prague.
When the Nazis occupied Czechoslovakia in World War II, the Gestapo used the former Hapsburg fortress in Terezin as a Jewish ghetto. Though it was not an extermination camp, more than 33,000 Jews died there, and many thousands more were transported to Auschwitz and other death camps.
Of the 150,000 Jews who arrived there, just 17,247 survived.
Follow your guide through this former concentration camp while you learn about the horrors of Terezin through the stories of those who endured it.
There is no hotel drop-off. You will be returned to Republic Square in Prague at tour’s end.
Very informative and sobering tour. Length of tour is too short, though, and felt like we were rushed quite a bit. Also, the bus was late picking us up, which normally wouldn't... Kameri Christy
be sure not to miss this very good value of time and money... Alan Myers
