It is a place where there were prisoners during nazism period and they were artists, cultural people and children. You can visit the fortezza and museum but the town too... It is possibile to see how the life was and their pain and scare.

Thank you for your visit but I would like to add one correction. The both camps in Terezin were under control and rules of the Nazis. Thank you.

Pavel Batel is passionate and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. This tour is very moving and an intense exploration of a very dark time in history. Please do not miss his tour.

It was 1500 CKZ. They only take cash. Well worth the extra. No more than 8 people. You are picked up from your hotel and returned back there. We went to a restaurant to eat, but wasn't expensive.
