From Prague: Terezin Concentration Camp Guided Tour

4. From Prague: Terezin Concentration Camp Guided Tour

Terezin is located approximately ninety miles north of Prague and just south of Litomerice. The town was built in 1780 by Emperor Joseph II of Austria and named after his mother, Empress Maria Theresa. Terezin consisted of two fortresses. The Big Fortress was surrounded by ramparts and contained a barracks. However, Terezin had not been used as a fortress since 1882 and had become a garrison town, which was almost entirely separated from the rest of the countryside. Terezin changed dramatically when the Nazis renamed it Theresienstadt and sent the first Jewish transports there in November 1941. These workers made up the Aufbaukommando (construction detail), later known in the camp as AK1 and AK2. These men were sent to transform the garrison town into a camp. These workers transformed the town, that in 1940 held approximately 7,000 residents, into a concentration camp which held about 35,000 to 60,000 people. With your certified guide, you will be guided through the Terezin concentration camp, learning about the terrible history of this place. The tour visits most places of significance at the site. Afterwards, you will return to Prague.

Overall rating

based on 15,836 reviews

I was afraid after reading reviews online but my friend and I loved it. The seats were comfy, the show was fantastic, and it was affordable. It was a great night to spend in Prague. I will say that the instructions could be better communicated and I didn’t like that I couldn’t initially pick my seat or even knew where I would be sitting until later but these are my preferences and had nothing to do with the quality of the show. Many reviewer online stated that this is no better then a high school play, how dare they. There were times when certain turns or steps were out of sync but to say that this show is low quality is disrespectful.

Amazing experience the musicians and the singer were exceptional. Cannot recommend it enough! The magnificent synagogue paired with music is magical and an unforgettable experience

This was one of the highlights during my visit in Prague! Belly dancers, live music, fire play and more which enjoying a 5 course dinner!
