Full description
Discover the true history behind two significant sites in Poland on this full-day experience: the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum and the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Enjoy expertly guided tours and fast-track entry tickets at each location. Start your day exploring the unforgettable history of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Meet your host at the entrance to the museum, then enter with your pre-booked ticket after passing through the security check. Funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became a symbol of human suffering. Learn the history of the largest concentration camp from World War II with a licensed guide. See the ruins of crematoria, gas chambers, the railway platform, and other objects. The first part of the museum visit takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 hour and 50 minutes. Between the first and second part, there will be a 10 to 15-minute break during which you can choose to eat your lunch. After the break, board a bus for the second part of the tour: a visit to Auschwitz II Birkenau. Spend another hour exploring this site with your expert guide. During the second half of your full-day program, travel on your own transport to the Salt Mine in Wieliczka, one of the oldest working salt mines in the world. Your tour leader will assist you with entrance into the museum. Sightseeing takes place 135 m below the surface. Prepare to walk down 800 stairs to get to the starting point. The tour takes up to 3 hours. The Wieliczka Salt Mine reaches a depth of 327 m and extends via horizontal passages and chambers for over 287 km (178 miles). The rock salt is of varying shades of grey, resembling unpolished granite rather than the white crystalline substance that might be expected. Channel your inner miner, exploring the depths of underground chambers, churches, and altars made of salt. After a 2.5 km walk with a licensed guide, return to the surface on an original elevator used by the miners.
