Description

Start your journey directly at Warsaw Central Train Station, eliminating the need for time-consuming pickups from various hotels across Warsaw. Embark on a 2-hour and 30-minute train ride, setting off towards the enchanting city of Krakow. Upon your Krakow arrival, a welcoming driver will meet you right at the platform, holding a sign with your name, to escort you to the starting point of your Auschwitz Birkenau tour. Embark on a 1-hour and 30-minute drive to the Auschwitz Birkenau Museum for a profound tour led by a knowledgeable guide. Walk through the historic site of the former Nazi concentration camp, observing the barracks, guard towers, and cremation sites. The tour delves into Auschwitz I, designed primarily for political prisoners, and Auschwitz II-Birkenau, largely focused on the extermination of Jews and Roma. Spend around 2 hours exploring the first camp and about 1 hour at the second. After this moving and educational visit, you'll be taken back to Krakow. Once back in Krakow, enjoy some free time to explore this city's rich historical tapestry on your own. Wander through the Old Market, the biggest medieval market square in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, among other notable landmarks and attractions. Krakow is a crucial stop on your journey through Poland, offering a deep dive into the country's culture and history. Your day concludes with a 2-hour and 30-minute train ride back to Warsaw, leaving you with lasting memories and insights from your immersive experiences in Krakow and Auschwitz-Birkenau.
