Full description

See the biggest former concentration camp set up by the Nazis in occupied Poland at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum. Take a solemn opportunity to familiarize yourself with the tragic history of life during the war in Poland. Visit one of the most significant heritage museums in the country. Although the Germans tried to destroy Auschwitz-Birkenau, some original camp buildings or their ruins have survived. Your tour starts as your driver arrives at your hotel to pick you up. On your way, you’ll watch a 45-minute documentary film, "The liberation of Auschwitz”, introducing you to the tragic history of the camp. Upon arrival, you’ll meet with a professional guide, with whom you’ll drive around Auschwitz I. Get to see numerous camp blocks, endless barbed wire with warning signs, and the grave of the last victims of Auschwitz. The guide will familiarize you with a comprehensive Auschwitz story, including the life of prisoners and the cruel practices of Nazi officers. Next, visit Auschwitz II-Birkenau, the extermination camp that housed the gas chambers. See long rows of inmate barracks while your guide tells you Birkenau's tragic story. After the tour, your driver will take you to your hotel in Krakow. Finally attend a 1-hour free walking tour by a local guide in Krakow Old Town. Begin at Plac Matejki Square and ends at the dragon sculpture by Wawel hill. See Krakow's Old Town Highlights and learn about the Krakow Market Square during this walking tour.
