The town of Terezín is ingloriously known as the largest concentration camp of World War II in Czech lands. Today, this town is a monument to the tragical fates of tens of thousands of Jews who lived in this camp.
Originally, Terezín was built in the 18th century as a strategic fortress for protection against the Prussian armies. You will visit the town of Terezín and its fortress on our air-conditioned bus.
