From Roudnice, it is a short step to reach the Romanesque monastery of Doksany and, further away, the impressive 18th century fortress of Terezín. Unfortunately, nowadays, this place is known to have been a concentration camp during the Second World War, testifying to the dark side of the 19th century.
