Detailed Itinerary

2-Day Tour:

Day 1: Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp
Explore the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp complex, one of the most infamous sites in Europe. Here you will see some of the prison barracks and learn about the prisoners in special exhibitions. Every year, millions of visitors from around the world walk through the gate bearing a fallacious inscription “Arbeit macht frei” (work sets one free), defeating the same route as prisoners over half a century ago. The original roads, fences, watchtowers, and railway ramps have been preserved.

Day 2: Wieliczka Salt Mine
Head underground at the Wieliczka Salt Mine and marvel at the salt formations, including the stunning Chapel of St. Kinga. The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries, and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine, and legends. The Wieliczka Salt Mine is at the same time the world's largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today.

1-Day Tour:

You will go to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex first. After visiting the Museum you will arrive back in Krakow where you can expect about 30 min break. Afterwards you will go to the Wieliczka Salt Mine.
