4Outside Litomerice you have Terezin, or Theresienstadt that the Germans called it during WW2.
The Terezin prison was a concentration camp and the city a ghetto as it is walled making a natural inclosure.
Theresienstadt camp had a very important part in the history as it was shown up to Red Cross as an ideal camp where the Jews were happy to live and that they prefered to be there.
You can find a lot of info by google the name.
Also not so far from there is the former original village of Lidice.
Connected to WW2 as SS totally erased the whole village and its 500 citizen from the face of earth on 10 June 1942.
This as a revenge for the assassination of Heinrich Reinhardt a couple of week earlier.

5Thanks for the tips everyone. Our flight was delayed nearly 5 hrs getting into Berlin, so we headed down pretty quickly only stopping in Pirna (lovely town) and arriving Prague at nighttime. On the way back up, we turned the GPS to avoid the fast roads and stopped first in Litomerice, then Decin, then Hrensko. From there we hit the autobahn back up to Berlin. I must say.. BMW might be the "ultimate driving machine" as their tagline stated, and Germany's autobahn might be the ultimate driving experience. The respect for only using the left lane for passing is remarkable, and of course going 190kph and being passed like I was stopped was quite... incredible.
Thanks for the tips and pointing us to these great cities/towns!
