From Warsaw: Auschwitz-Birkenau and Krakow Private Day Trip

1. From Warsaw: Auschwitz-Birkenau and Krakow Private Day Trip

Meet your driver and get picked up from your accommodation in Warsaw in the early morning. This private trip starts the day with a drive to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp. When you arrive at the site, you will embark on a 3.5 hours guided group tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau with a guide speaking your chosen language. Start in the Auschwitz concentration camp and learn about how it was established by German Nazis on the outskirts of the town Oswiecim in 1940. After the war, the camp was turned into a museum displaying evidence of the genocide, which you will have the opportunity to browse. In the museum watch a film made after the liberation of the camp shown in various languages. After spending time in Auschwitz head over to the Birkenau section of the concentration camp. Discover how, in 1941, the German Nazis established a new camp called Auschwitz II Birkenau. In 1942-1945, approximately 1.5 million people lived and died here. Most of them (90%) were Jews, others were Poles, Gypsies, Russians, and prisoners from 28 countries of Europe. In 1979, Auschwitz–Birkenau Concentration Camp was listed as a UNESCO World Culture and National Heritage Site. Depart Auschwitz-Birkenau for a 1.5 hours journey to Krakow. You will have three hours of free time to see the Main Market Square in Krakow, the biggest Medieval old town square in Europe. In the Old Town you can also see Wawel Hill where the Cathedral and the Royal Castle are, the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbican and Sukiennice, famously known as the Cloth Hall, thousands of bars and delightful regional restaurants, many historic buildings, and horse-driven cabs. During the trip there will be time to eat lunch in a restaurant. You will get picked up after your time in Krakow and returned to Warsaw where you will be dropped off at your accommodation in the evening.
