We will pick you up from your accommodation in Krakow, then travel by minivan to the site of Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oświęcim, a small Polish town, approximately 1,5 hour away from Krakow.
When you arrive at your destination, you will be met by your professional guide and enter the site at Auschwitz I. Walk through the famous gate to the camp, bearing the inscription, "Arbeit macht frei", meaning "Work sets one free", and take the same route as the prisoners that were brought here during the German Nazi Holocaust.
After exploring the Auschwitz I complex, your driver will meet you again and take you by bus for the short journey to nearby Birkenau (Auschwitz II) where your tour will continue. Here you will see the original fences and crematoriums as well as the remains of the colossal gas chambers.
Wadowice is less than 1 hour drive away from Oświęcim. It was this city where John Paul II was born and raised, and in the place of his former residence a Museum was opened in his memory. His timeless message sent to people around the world is an expression of incredible wisdom and understanding of contemporary problems, which makes this place a popular destination for many Catholics. Of course, you cannot miss the famous papal fondant. After the whole trip, which lasts about 9-10 hours you will be drop-off at your hotel or indicated address within the city center.
Duration: 9 hours.
