Terezin & Jewish Quarter Private Tours

Reviewed By travelog77

Going online before our trip to Prague I read so many outstanding reviews of Patel Batel that I knew from the outset that his tour would be first class. His company is called Terezin and Jewish Quarter Private Tours.Luckily he was available on our chosen date of 20th September and booking and communication with his company was easy. He collected us from our hotel at 8.45 am in a comfortable van and we were part of a group tour of 8 in total. His commentary began once we were on the way describing various events which really brought the history to life, such as the assassination of Reinhardt Heydrich. Once we arrived at Terezin he gave us an overview of the place and then took us inside the museum where he guided us for a section then allowed us time to view the exhibits on our own, which was a good idea. He then took us through other parts of the town and we viewed the film which was made for the Red Cross to show them the “ model town” Terezin was supposed to be, whilst in reality being completely the opposite. We spent a good amount of time in the artist museum and heard him tell so many stories about the people and children who produced art and plays and music in this awful place. After a stop for lunch we continued to the small fortress which was the site of terrible horrors. Pavel handled the commentary with sensitivity and such compassion for the human suffering involved. We also visited a crematoria and the Jewish cemetery and its monument. Pavel is a gifted historian and has interviewed many survivors and their families and written books on the subject which I will be interested to read. You can tell the moment you meet him that he has a deep passion for sharing his incredibly vast knowledge and a desire to make a difference to the world. He is still researching and writing as there are so many more stories that need to be told. The day we spent at Terezin with Pavel was simply unforgettable and we cannot recommend it highly enough.

Strekov Castle

Reviewed By Julian P - London, United Kingdom

We cycled up from the river path and had a beautiful lunch of cheese in oil, salad and local sausages whilst taking in the view watching the cyclists below to see if they noticed the correct turning to take (under the railway line, not straight on!). There are 2 restaurants, the first you come to probably has a better menu, but no views.

Tiske stEny

Reviewed By efremyul - Prague, Czech Republic

Tyssa Walls is group of rocks in Bohemian Switzerland. There are two points from which you may rich this rocks. The first one is village Tisa (you may have a parking near church of St. Anna, it is only one church in that village, you need pay for parking). Other point is restaurant Turistická chata Tísa. There are two circles here. First one is near entrance of Tisa village. You will be able to pass the circle in 30 - 45 min. The second circle is longer. You may start it from both entrances. In my opinion is better to start in Tisa village point. because you may deside with which circle you want to start. Famalies with children must be very carefull, because "red circle" pass near precipice, but views which you may look from that points are fantastic! I think it would be better, if you will have good sport/outdoor shoes on you. Rocks seat in forest and passes near them are like from the fairytail.

Usti nad Labem Zoo

Reviewed By Ron B - Dunfermline, United Kingdom

The zoo is on the outskirts of the city but only about fifteen minutes from the city centre. It's built on the side of a very steep hillside so you are well advised to take the miniature train up to the top then walk down taking in the attractions. Quite a pleasant day if the weather good and restaurant offers good quality food reasonably priced. Also entrance fee of approx twenty pounds for four adults and a two year old good value. Also a few cafe's dotted around on the way down. Downside not very impressed with big cat enclosures, it was obvious the tiger was distressed.

The Synagogue

Reviewed By mihoppy

We were taken to this beautifully restored Synagogue , rabbi's house and school by Pavel Batel , a wonderful ,knowledgeable and engaging guide , after we had visited Terezin with him.The Jewish Community in Ustek dates back to the Middle Ages and the Synagogue was built in 1794. It is located in the old " Jewish Lane" , and there is also an old Rabbinical house and small Jewish school in the basement that have been beautifully refurbished . There is an exhibition on Jewish life and Jewish education in the rabbinical house . Unfortunately , the exhibition is in Czech only . A lot of the exhibit is self-explanatory , even if one does not understand the Czech explanations.
The Synagogue and rabbinical house are not open the whole year round , so it it worth clarifying prior to visiting if it is open and what the hours are .It is also worth coming with a private guide who is able to translate the exhibit from Czech , and explain the historical significance .
As explained to us by our guide , Pavel Batel , and also in the official website, 10 Stars :The refurbishment is part of a project " Revitalization of Jewish Monuments in the Czech Republic" .The refurbished Synagogue and rabbinical house in Ustek were opened in mid-2014 .
The project has enabled the reconstruction, restoration, and preservation of 15 important historical buildings in 10 towns in Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia. Regional centers of Jewish culture will be created in seven regions in the following locations: Úštěk, Jičín, Brandýs nad Labem, Plzeň, Březnice, Nová Cerekev, Polná, Boskovice, Mikulov and Krnov. These activities included not only the buildings’ construction and restoration, but the majority of the synagogues and rabbinical houses also include permanent Exhibitions that, along with other temporary programs (lectures, Concerts, screening, theater Performances, etc.), inform visitors about Jewish history and Judaism in a unique manner and in an authentic setting.

Vanov Waterfalls

Reviewed By HannahBellah - Warsaw, Poland

Usti nad Labem definitely doesn't belong to the most beautiful cities in the Czech Republic, but there other advantages to living there/visiting - the nature around. Czech Switzerland National Park is about 20 km away. Vanov Waterfalls are not a part of it, but they are very close to the town centre and have a lot of charm, too.
You can get there by taking a cable car from Vetruse and taking the green trail from there. It will lead you mostly through a beautiful forest, there are also beautiful views over the river on the way. The route isn't challenging, but it's better to wear good hiking boots because of mud and stones. You can enjoy this walk during most seasons, from spring to autumn.
