Auschwitz has become a primary symbol of the Holocaust. It was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. It is a proof of cruel terror and unimaginable genocide.
Original fences, wooden watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved. The collection of the museum contains original documents, suitcases, shoes and other belongings of murdered prisoners. Visit includes also a short ride to Birkenau camp, which functioned as a war camp, extermination camp and place from which people were sent to labour in Nazi Germany. More than 90 percent of prisoners, mostly Jews, were killed there. Birkenau was mainly destroyed by the retreating Germans.
The Main Market Square in Krakow is the biggest Medieval old town square in Europe. The Old Town offers a unique atmosphere with thousands of bars and delightful regional restaurants, many historic buildings and horse-driven cabs. You will see among others the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbican and Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) – Renaissance main centre of international trade.Besides you will see the Wawel Hill – with the Cathedral and the Royal Castle it is the most picturesque and important sight in Krakow. Some of its oldest stone buildings are dated back to 10th century. Until 1611 Wawel was the formal seat of Polish monarchy – it was the place of royal
coronations, weddings and funerals. In a cave at the foot of the hill, on the bank of the Vistula River, the Wawel Dragon had his lair. Nowadays it is a common tourist stop.
If you prefer you can visit Kazimierz – the former Jewish district. From the 14th until the 19th century, Kazimierz was an independent town – a place of coexistence of Christian and Jewish cultures, separated from Krakow by the branch of the Vistula river. In this day and age it is the cultural centre of the city and young people’s favourite place of meetings.
