North Circuit – This trip combines a visit to the Terezín memorial (2.5 hrs) and the typical small Czech city of Mělník (2 hrs). Terezín is a memorial to the sad history of the Second World War. At that time Terezín was changed and turned into a Jewish Ghetto, and was used by the Nazis as a transit camp for Jews whose final destination was Auschwitz concentration camp. After visiting Terezín we head to the Mělník to get the feeling of how life is “behind” the Prague capital. Here you can visit Mělník castle, owned by the Lobkowicz family, and the old crypt (Mělník Ossuary) of the Church of Saints Peter and Paul. Finally Mělník is also a good place for an inexpensive lunch or dinner before heading back to Prague.
