Bus Tour to Terezín from Prague
US$60.81
Overview
Visit Terezin Memorial, a former military fortress and WWII concentration camp, during this 5-hour historical tour from Prague. With your local guide, you'll walk through the impressive edifice, originally built in the 18th century by Emperor Josef II. Learn about its later role as a holding camp for Europe's Jewish population through your guide's informative commentary. Visit, too, the Small Fortress, a prison that held captives in extreme conditions throughout several centuries. Entrance fees and round-trip transportation from Prague are included.
What to Expect
Join your small group at 9am in Prague's city center and climb aboard a comfortable air-condition bus to begin your 5-hour tour to Terezín.  Built as a military fortress by Emperor Josef II, Terezín is more closely tied to World War II. Known as Theresienstadt concentration camp, the walled garrison town's main fortress served as a holding camp for Jewish people from all across Europe and was exploited for Nazi propaganda purposes during a Red Cross visit in 1944. The lesser-known Small Fortress was a prison run by the Reich’s secret police, the Gestapo.

During the bus ride, listen as your guide shares insights into the events leading up to World War II and the Holocaust. Begin your tour at the museum located in the Large Fortress, formerly an all-boys school, which details the personal experiences of prisoners held here. Then, view an authentic propaganda film before moving on to the cemetery and crematorium.

Cross the river and discover the conditions that centuries of prisoners had to endure at the Small Fortress. See the cell of Franz Josef's assassin and learn about the cramped quarters and firing squads of the Holocaust era. This trip provides a powerful, personal look into some of the darker moments in history, but also highlights the strength and resilience of the faith maintained by its inhabitants.

Return to the departure point in central Prague five hours later.

A Must if you’re into History

We’re not mad on guided tours but were keen to do this one and picked a good one. We asked at the Hotel reception and she suggested two companies. We were picked up from the Hotel at 8.15am and taken to their main pickup point...More
