Full day combination tour of Prague Jewish Museum and trip to Terezin with a Private Guide

This is a full day combination of Prague Jewish Museum and trip to former concentration camp and ghetto of Terezin.
Prague is often called the "Jerusalem of the West", and even though a very limited percentage of the original buildings has been preserved till these days, the collection of items in the Jewish Museum, as well as visit of the Old Jewish Cemetery are true highlights of a visit to Prague.
The second part of this tour is trip to infamous place of Terezin, which was originally built as a military fortress by the Emperor Joseph II. , and named after his mother Empress Maria Theresa as "the city of Theresia". During WW II, this city was converted into a Jewish Ghetto, where Jews from all over the continent were transported. The so called Small Fortress was used as a prison for Nazi secret police prisoners.


As part of the tour we will be walking through the area of former Jewish quarter. The Jewish museum is located in the remaining Synagogues, used today as exhibition ground - Pinkas, Maisel, Spanish and Klausen. We will visit the Old Jewish cemetery, and walk past the thumb of Rabi Löw.
After a short refreshment break we will meet our car with driver and continue for about hour out of the city to explore the former concentration camp in Terezin. We will visit both the small fortress used once as a gestapo prison, as well as the former Jewish ghetto.

This was a fascinating tour with an excellent guide who provided interesting and pertinent information. Gabriela's personality was perfect for a tour of this nature, which is emotionally draining.
