Impressions Ok, Mrs. Basia, the guide, a perfect big applause for her, helped her to imagine what was going on there ..... what about the organization ... that's a lot to be corrected. one place to another Already in the ticket price you do not have to pay extra for parking and drive your car You have to ask yourself and read carefully on the ticket where the guide will be waiting People don't be afraid to ask Good luck it's worth seeing this place

I recommend it very heartily. The contact with the history of the war period made a great impression and emotion. I have read many books on the subject of war and the memories of people who survived hell in the concentration camp. However, contact, touching the walls of the camp and seeing the remains of those people leave unforgettable impressions, regret, sadness and, above all, great respect for the victims.

It was very impressive. You will be met at the specified time. You get good explanation. Super friendly guide. It is a pity that the break between the 2 camps is only 10 minutes. And so you don't have time to buy something to eat or drink because the line is too long. Learned a lot. Was a great day.
