Private Tour of Terezin & Jewish Quarter of Prague


Start the day with a tour of Terezin, a visit which is essential to understanding the complicated history that unfolded here in 1941, when the region's thousand-year-old Jewish communities were deported through Terezin to death camps. Terezin was completely different psychologically and physically from any of the 632 other camps. Understand what happened to so many innocent people through actual artifacts, children's drawings, poetry, and other rare items which survived their owners to speak so eloquently for them.
Upon our return to Prague, discover the treasures of the ancient Jewish Quarter. View the interiors of our famous synagogues. Behold the region's most extensive collection of beautiful Judaica, including silver, glass, textiles, manuscripts, and other rare, precious objects. Take a walk through the Old Jewish Cemetery and see the Burial Brotherhood Building. This tour also shows you a poignant exhibition of children's drawings created in the Terezin ghetto concentration camp.

Itinerary

Terezin Camp: You will visit the Gestapo prison, the Terezin Museum, the Crematorium (closed on Saturdays), the hidden synagogue, and the newly opened exhibition at Magdeburg Barracks.

Jewish Quarter: You will visit several famous synagogues: the 13th century Old-New Synagogue, the oldest synagogue north of the Alps; the Pinkas Synagogue, now a hallowed museum dedicated to the Czech victims of the Holocaust; the Klaus- en Synagogue, which contains a permanent collection of lore surrounding the Maharal; the Maisel synagogue with its extensive collection of Judaica; and the newly restored Spanish synagogue, built in the Moorish style. Also included is a visit to the Chevrah Kaddisha building and the Old Jewish Cemetery, with its densely packed layers of graves up to 12 levels deep.

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour was one of contrasts - including the sober history of Terezin concentration camp with its Jewish memorials and collection of haunting children's art combined with a tour and wine tasting at historic Chateau Melnik on the banks of the Elbe and Moldau Rivers. We also visited a medieval ossuary in the local Melnik Church and visited the spot where the Nazi Leader Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated during WWII by Czech resistance fighters. It was a riveting day outside Prague. Well worth it!
