Auschwitz - Birkenau was the largest concentration camp established by the Nazi regime to carry out the extermination of not only European Jews but also Poles, Gypsies and people of other nationalities. It consisted of three main camps: Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II (Birkenau) and Auschwitz III (Monowitz). After WW2 the Polish government restored Auschwitz and turned it into a museum. It was also included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1979.
Krakow is one of the largest and oldest cities in Poland, with a population of nearly 800,000. Situated on the Vistula river in the Lesser Poland region, it dates back to the 7th century. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596 and has always been one of the leading centres of Polish scientific, cultural and artistic life. With a history encompassing a thousand years, Krakow remains the spiritual heart of Poland and the centre of local and international tourism. Walking with our expert licensed city guide along the beautiful and mysterious streets of Krakow you will feel the unique atmosphere and find a synthesis of all things Polish, connecting tradition with modernity.
