An imaginatively restored site of a concentration camp where artistic creativity has been used to impressive effect. The English audio guide is clearly expressed and informative, and a must for an understanding of the background. Some details of the former camp are preserved (e.g. the...More

Any visit here is a must but not for the faint hearted. A harrowing graphic memorial to “man’s inhumanity to man”. Well appointed memorial site with excellent English audio tour devices. Very well preserved cells and halls and a fine Hall of commemoration with excellent...More

The museum itself is a must, it leaves a deep impact that will not be forgotten soon. I would highly recommend visiting. Unfortunately, what I will also not forget is the ignorance of the person handing out audio guides. When we asked for the Slovenian...More

The museum was very informative & getting to walk around & hear the narrator explain the various things in the complex was very nice.

High walls as you enter are scary enough if you imagine what was going through the minds of people taken there. You realise there is no escape and things that happend inside are terrible and we should learn about it. This is not guided tour...More

very moving and sobering location. there are no info plaques or free guides available, so i'd highly reccomend visiting the museum part first before walking around the buildings in order to learn the history of the place.

Moving; surprising that most victims were not Jewish but others unacceptable to fascists. A plain but beautiful monument with an informative museum.

It should be visited by everyone. Because the human kind didnot make only monuments and palaces.... Man is really the most scary creature on earth. About the tortures and victims of ww2. There is no ticket needed .
