What to expect

Auschwitz has become the main symbol of the Holocaust. It was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. It is a proof of cruel terror and unimaginable genocide.

This tour includes not only the visit to Auschwitz, but also a short ride to the Birkenau camp, which functioned as a war camp, extermination camp and place from which people were sent to labour in Nazi Germany. More than 90 percent of prisoners, mostly Jews, were killed there. At the end of the second world war, the Birkenau camp was mainly destroyed by the retreating Germans.

After the tour to Auschwitz and Birkenau, you'll visit Krakow. Its Main Market Square is the biggest Medieval old town square in Europe. The city's Old Town offers a unique atmosphere with thousands of bars and delightful regional restaurants, many historic buildings and horse-driven cabs. You will see, among others, the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbican and Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) – Renaissance main centre of international trade.

You'll also marvel at the Wawel Hill with the Cathedral and the Royal Castle! It's the most picturesque and important sight in Krakow. Some of its oldest stone buildings are dated back to 10th century. Until 1611, the castle was actually the formal seat of Polish monarchy – it was the place of royal coronations, weddings and funerals. In a cave at the foot of the hill, on the bank of the Vistula River, the Wawel Dragon had his lair. Nowadays it is a common tourist stop.
