Auschwitz Museum is undoubtely a must see place for everyone. Non-definable icon of genocide and terror that humans did to humans. Nazi German extermination camp existed there between 1940 and 1945. Over 1 500 000 people were killed, mostly Jewish, but also Polish, Russian, Gypsy and others. Such memorials as wooden barracks, gas chambers, collection of shoes stolen from prisoners gives you a perfect opportunity to understand the anatomy of evil. What is really important the whole museum together with their staff and guides creates a perfect background for this difficult history lesson. Expect to see both: Auschwitz forced labour camp as well as Birkenau extermination site. You will be assisted by local, English-speaking guide. Tickets for a documentary movie at the camp are included.
For the second part of our day tour we will take you to the historical city of Krakow – essence of Poland, its tradition and history. One of the most beautiful European towns, that miracolously survived the last war, hosts thousands of tourist each day. You definately need a local guide there with the real insider feeling. Iconic Wawel Hill – the residence of Polish kings, Old Town and its medieval “shopping mall” – Cloth Hall, St. Mary’s Basilica with tremendous stained glass windows and gothic, wooden altar created by Wit Stwosz – everything can be reached within a few hours with the help of RealPoland’s guide and a driver. Krakow is famous of the best restaurants serving traditional Polish food – you will have an opportunity to try one of them during your lunch break.
