Fortress of Terezín lies on flat fertile land 60 km north of Prague, near the fork of the Labe (Elbe) and Ohře (Eger) rivers. Emperor Joseph II of Austria founded it at the end of the 18th century as a robust fortress system to protect Bohemia from the northwest. The fortress was built in the era´s most modern style based on the French school of Meziéres. The system's core is a Main Fortress containing a town, the Minor Fortress ahead of it, and a fortified tract between the old and the new Ohře. The entire fortified tract occupies 67 ha, not including an artificial 158 ha floodable basin. The eastern part of the city was built on the swamp land using oak piles and grids filled in with stone. In June 1790, less than 10 years after groundbreaking, with project supervisor Klement Pellegrini present, the fort was declared warworthy.
