Full description

Pay your respects at the Auschwitz and Birkenau Nazi Concentration Camps. Auschwitz has become a primary 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.

The collection of the museum contains original documents, suitcases, shoes, and other belongings of murdered prisoners. There you will find original fences, wooden watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved. The visit includes a short ride to Birkenau camp, which functioned as a war camp, extermination camp and place from people were sent to labor in Nazi Germany. More than 90 per cent of prisoners, mostly Jews, were killed there. Birkenau was mostly destroyed by the retreating Germans. In Krakow, a local guide will take you on a tour around the city. You will see among others Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbicane, and ‘Sukiennice‘ (Cloth Hall) – a renaissance major center of international trade.

The most interesting sight is the Wawel Hill with the Cathedral and the Royal Castle - a place of royal coronations, weddings, and funerals. Some of its oldest stone buildings can be dated back to the 10th century.

In a cave at the foot of the hill, on the bank of the Vistula River, Wawel Dragon had his lair and the dragon’s cave is now a popular tourist stop.
