  • From Wroclaw: Full-Day Lower Silesia Tour

    2. From Wroclaw: Full-Day Lower Silesia Tour

    The Church of Peace in Świdnica is the largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, built in the former Silesia in the mid-17th Century amid the religious strife that followed the Peace of Westphalia.

What people are saying about Gross-Rosen Concentration Camp

Trip great! Lower Silesia is beautiful in autumn! In addition, the weather was favorable, the sun allowed us to see the amazing colors of autumn on the beautiful hills. The Church of Peace in Świdnica undoubtedly deserves an honorable place on the UNESCO list - it is beautiful and the historic cemetery is enchanting. The Książ Castle and its gardens deserve to be called "Pearls of Lower Silesia". The Osówka complex left at the end of the trip stimulates reflection on the fate of the underground city builders and is still surrounded by an aura of mystery. We especially thank our guide Mr. Jakub for professionalism, extensive knowledge of the region and travel along the scenic route.

The young guide Jacob did anexellent job explaining useverything about the Camp and work and live conditions. Thanks to his dedication we were able to better imagine how our grand father resp great grand father lived the last year of his life...
