We have been to Terezian fort, on a classtrip to Prague in 2005. The fortress architecture is fascinating, but unfortunately is it overshaded by the Nazi history, being used as an concentration camp.We learned a lot about the "Vorzeigelager" and the stories of people who had lived here. I recommend visiting it, when you are on your way to Prague.
