Terezin Things to Do: 46 reviews and 100 photos
Walking up the bucolic tree-lined lane to the fortress, first comes the double high brick walls with the deep moat between. This area was patrolled by guard dogs to prevent escapes. The entrance is through an arched long passageway. The ticket office is contained in this passage. On the left is a map of the prison as well as a small (and unvisited) little collection of Nazi uniforms and artifacts dating to the occupation period. These rooms were originally the office of W. Schmidt, one of the prison commanders. He would be executed in 1946 following trial.
