This personalized trip to the Jasna Góra Monastery includes picking you up from a prior determined location in a comfortable, air-conditioned car. Your English-speaking driver will drive you directly to the monastery and take you to meet your guide, who will tell you the history of the place on a 1.5-hour guided tour. The Jasna Góra Monastery is the biggest and most popular shrine to the Virgin Mary and is visited by nearly 4 million tourists from around the world every year.

What people are saying about Silesian Voivodeship

Great tour into a very dark page of history. This trip was intense and very emotional, knowing all the details of what took place in the death camp. Our guides for the day were very knowlegable into providing their knowledge for HOLOCAUST. I recomend this trip to everyone because we should not forget what happened there... It was one day and one activity that will stay with me for the rest of my life . That is why i visited Krakow so as to visit AUTSVITS.

Excellent value for money... This is the perfect choice if you are looking for a complete organized experience (no need to sort out tickets and transportation by yourselves as the agency will handle it). I suggest to select the option with the pick up in hotel that would make very comfy the entire day tour.

wear sensible footwear, we went in sandals and now we are suffering from it, overall experience was surreal, I think everyone must visit at least once in there lifetime

All was very smooth and easy! Everyone was kind and made the whole thing far more straight forward.

Anna was a perfect Guide and driver, unfortunally we dont have Anna as the Guide in Auswitchz
