Your guide will lead you around the camp complex and recount the memories of those who were interned there.

Itinerary

  • 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.
