Sightseeing Tours: Zakopane, Cracow - Auschwitz - Wieliczka

  • Auschwitz Birkenau 

    We believe Auschwitz is something much more than just a regular Museum. One should think of a visit in more of an 'life experience' category. For some people it is world's largest cemetery, for the others one of the most important witnesess of the tragedy of World War II. No matter what your interest is,  we believe  everybody should see it. Auschwitz began as a concentration camp for Polish political prisoners. In 1942, it became the center for extermination of European Jews. On this tour you will witness where the Nazis killed about 1.5 million people - mainly Jews, but also Poles, Gypsies, Russians and other nationalities - between 1940 and 1945.Your tour begins with a 15 minute documentary film about the liberation of the camp.

    After a short break, the tour continues to Birkenau, where you go up to the watchtower above the entrance gate to see the view of the biggest Nazi Concentration Camp. A Martyrdom Museum was set up here in 1947.In 1979, UNESCO included Auschwitz-Birkenau in its list of World Heritage sites
  • Discover one of the oldest salt mine in Europe - Wieliczka

On the way visitors see underground chambers and chapels hewn out in the saltrock, statues of saints sculpted in salt, and saline lakes. The mine has operated continuously since its construction in the Middle Ages. Today it reaches a depth of more than one thousand feet on nine levels with close to one hundred ninety miles of corridors, galleries, chambers and underground lakes. The mine currently has three distinct functions: as an active, working mine, as the world's first subterranean therapeutic sanitarium used in the treatment of bronchial and allergic asthma, and as an important tourist attraction for visitors to Krakow.
