Prague -> Terezin in July

by ramot418

I'm planning to be in Prague this month and want to go for a day to Terezin. I want to go on my own, not with a group.

What is the best way to get there from Prague - bus or train? If bus, where do I get the bus? If train, from which station does it depart and is it a direct train, or do I have to transfer? If you know fares and bus/train frequency, that would be a bonus. Thanks in advance.

For travel to Terezin, check out www.idos.cz. It gives all options, including the time of the journey and the price. It's in English too.

The options with pros and cons for each are on my Terezin page under transportation tips. And there are definitely good and bad points for solo travel versus tours. You will never forget this place. N.

Do you think of Terezin (Theresienstadt)? In IDOS timetable become Theresienstadt called Terezin (LT).

Theresienstadt has no railway station according to ViaMichelin http://www.viamichelin.com/viamichelin/gbr/tpl/hme/MaHomePage.htm

It seems that the only way to get there is by bus. That's fine, especially since the last 2 buses are at 18:43 and 20:13 on weekdays (according to www.idos.cz). The trip is approximately one hour and costs 67/72 Kc one way. I'll compare it with the tours but the freedom to spend as much time as I want will probably trump everything else. Assuming I take the 9:00 bus, I get there at 10:00, which leaves me 10 hours to visit the site - more than enough time, I presume.

Thank you all very much.

Ramot - I can't document where I read this but there are one or two comments, maybe even on VT, that the late busses sometimes just don't bother to show up. Terezin is only a stop on the way to and from a larger town somewhat north (???Lutowice). Make sure they are going to run. These people implied that the last reliable bus was around 1530.

I went to Terezin with the public transportation and there was no problem with the buses. I took the 14:13 bus back to Prague from the stop across the street from the information office at the museum site. It came more or less on time.

Travel Tips for Terezin

Terezin / Theresienstadt

by globetrott

Theresienstadt was founded by emperor Joseph II in 1780, and it was built like a fortress to be able to defend itself during the wars against Preussia.

When you click on my pic you may see the 3 main places of interest :
1) The small fortress , outside of the town-walls
2)The Ghetto Muzeum
3)the Krematorium, also outside of the town. The town was named after the Austrian Empress Maria Theresia.

Terezin - a fortress and prison since a long time

by globetrott

From the beginning of the 19th century Terezin was used as a prison for soldiers and political prisoners, as escape was almost impossible due to the high walls around the whole town and the wide moat around the walls. There is NO fond memory - but it is a place people should visit and see it themselves...

KZ and Nazi-prison since 1940

by globetrott

Terezin / Theresienstadt was made a KZ and Nazi-prison in 1940.

140 000 people were deported from Czechia, Austria, Germany , Netherlands, Danmark, Slovakia and Hungary to Theresienstadt.
Teresienstadt was used partly as a transit-camp, before the prisoners were taken to other KZs. No fond memory at all - but a part of history, everybody should have seen with his/her own eyes.

Theresienstadt - a place for propaganda

by globetrott

Terezin / Theresienstadt was also used by the Nazis as a place for propaganda, where the delegations of the Red Cross were shown around and were demonstrated, how "well" organized the camp was with their own theatre, a barber shop, a newpaper, a ghetto-orchestra etc...

The Nazi tried to tell the world, they would not kill anyone there, but simply organize a ghetto for them, a place to live in an "autonome jewish area" NO fond memory - but an unfamous place of history

Terezin

by globetrott

When in Terezin, you should certainly also have a look and take a little walk through the town of today.
At many places it looks like in the times of WW II, in other parts it also has great parks and lovely architecture
