Description

We start de trip to Lešetice, 70 km from Prague, south east, a town with barely 200 inhabitants. We will pass by the Prague Hippodrome, and along the edge of the Vltava River. Entering the forest we will see the visitor's place. Away from the field itself so that relatives are not horrified when they see the barbed wire. Meters later we will arrive at the gates of the field. Let us be prepared to move to those times. First we will go up to the general surveillance tower of the camp. From there we will show you a panoramic view of the places to visit and you will hear about the history and why from that Gulag. Then we will enter what was the camp command, which is now a museum about the Czech Gulag. We will continue through the punishment cells, the re-education room, the infirmary and barracks that have been adapted as exhibition rooms for dissidents and detractors. Then we will see an exhibition about the last battles of the war after it ended and finally we will visit an exhibition about the extraction and use of uranium in the Czech Republic.
