The tour provided alot of detailed information that filled in what this camp and prison was used for by the Nazis during their occupation and terror in this community. It was up close and intense and very informative.

Visited as part of Pavel Batel's Terezin tour. It is absolutely mind blowing and the untold horrors of the site will stay with you for some time. Be prepared with walking boots as the site is largely untouched. Recommended to all.

Hi there the takes about two hours and the travel time depends on the location you are staying. We was staying in Prague central so it was about 45-50 mins on the coach. The guide was amazing and very knowledgable.
