First day we propose tour to Auschwitz and Birkenau. It is a worldwide symbol of the terror, genocide and the Holocaust.
Auschwitz concentration camp was a network of concentration and extermination camps built in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. It was the largest of the German concentration camps, consisting of Auschwitz I (the Stammlager or base camp); Auschwitz II–Birkenau (the Vernichtungslager or extermination camp); Auschwitz III–Monowitz, also known as Buna–Monowitz (a labor camp); and 45 satellite camps.
During the tour you’ll see the site of the camp: remaining camp buildings and its ruins, residential barracks (including the ruins of the gas chambers and crematoria), several kilometres long camp fence and interior roads and unloading ramp in Birkenau.
Additionally, an important part of the tour is visiting of the exhibition presented in the remaining five blocks of the camp.
This place is still visited by people from all over the world to see the remnants of one of the greatest crimes against humanity in the world history.
Second day it’s day for Wieliczka Salt Mine and Krakow City Tour.
Wieliczka Salt Mine is regarded as one of the seventh Polish wonders and it has been on UNESCO World Heritage List since 1978.
It’s a guided tour upon which you visit 20 chambers connected by 2 km of corridors on three levels underground. 380 steps lead down the stairs to the first level (64 m below, approx. 210 ft) and the lift will take you up from the lowest level (135 m, 440 ft) in the end of the tour. The temperature underground is always 14 Celsius degrees, the air is cool and believed to have a positive impact on health.
The tourist route leads through the underground chapels, caverns and caves where you can admire sculptures and chandeliers made from the salt crystals. The greatest of the underground chapel is that of St. Kinga where magnificent chandeliers and sculptures made of grey salt are exhibited. Two-hours excursion gives only a glimpse of the whole labyrinth hidden underground.
