Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum – half day group tour

During World War II Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest concentration camp of Nazi Germany. It was established in the suburbs of the city of Oswiecim (Auschwitz in German), 60 kilometres west of Krakow. It took the lives of over 1.1 million people, mostly Jewish, but also Poles, Romanians and Russians. Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp took place in January 1945. Before that however, Nazi authorities tried to destroy as much evidence of the mass murders as possible. After the war, the Polish government decided to restore Auschwitz-Birkenau and turn it into a museum. It preserves the memory of Auschwitz-Birkenau and honours the victims of Nazism. Now it is part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites and more than 2 million tourists visit Auschwitz-Birkenau each year.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine– half day group excursion

Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the oldest in the world and was established in the 13th century. Today salt is no longer mined in Wieliczka, but this original underground complex is preserved in a great condition, making it a world-class monument. Wieliczka Salt Mine was recognised in the UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List due to its breath taking underground chambers carved entirely in salt, and remains one of the most popular day trips from Krakow, drawing the attention of over one million visitors each year.
