On your private trip to Terezín concentration camp near Prague visit the Small Fortress and the Jewish ghetto.

Walk through the areas where the tragic chapter of European history was written and learn from it. During the visit to Terezin Memorial you will:

  • see a short film about the history of the camp
  • visit a large complex of the Small Fortress, Museum of Jewish ghetto, and National Cemetery

The military fortress Terezín was built during the reign of Emperor Josef II toward the end of the 18th century and in that time it could house an army of 60.000 soldiers and 6.500 horses.

In 1940, during the World War II, the Terezín fortress was converted into a state prison. In the Small Fortress were imprisoned mainly Czech (not Jews primarily) resistance fighters. Many died of malnutrition, hygiene conditions, or brutal treatment of guards.

In fall 1941 a Jewish ghetto and a concentration camp was established in the town Terezin. It became a place of suffering for over 90.000 prisoners, many of them (about 35.000) lost their lives here. Prisoners were deported to European camps like Terezín to "concentrate the Jews", it was not meant to be the death camp for mass murder. As a result, transports were sent from Terezin to many camps in the East.

At the end of the war just 3.800 survivors left the fortress alive.

9 euro entrance fee/person is to be paid upon arrival to Terezín memorial.

"We have done many private tours and Lenka is the best"

We did the Prague city tour by private car and it was worth every penny. Lenka asks what you want to get out of your tour and makes suggestions and tailors your tour cor you. We a person with some mobility issues and she was very accomodating. She is one of the most knowledgeable guides we have ever used. I only wish we had more time in Prague to take her Jewish Quarter tour as she has her MA in Jewish hiztory

"Don't Miss this Private Tour of the Jewish Quarter in Prague by Lenka"

There is so much to see and learn from the multiple remarkable sites of the Jewish Quarter that we were so thrilled to have booked this tour with Supreme Prague. Our guide, Lenka, a scholar of Jewish history, was fabulous. She was friendly, courteous, efficient, and eminently knowledgeable about all of the astounding synagogues to see, the striking Jewish cemetery, and all points in between. There are so many important facts and details that she conveyed that made our experience so meaningful. The remarkable Jewish culture that once thrived here and the tragedy of its decimation by the Nazis were conveyed with sensitivity and clarity. This was a truly unforgettable learning experience and sites not to be missed during your visit to Prague.

"Great guide in Prague"

Lenka has the look and pose of a runway model and the brain of a great historian! She was knowledgeable and precise in educating us to the history of Prague and the Jewish quarter! She came highly recommended and we would do the same.
