Krakow 2 nights
One of the oldest cities in Poland, Krakow has moved into the modern age with effortless ease. A former royal capital, today the city harmonizes architectural elegance and regal legacies with a cosmopolitan vibe that resonates throughout its beautiful squares and along its wide and welcoming streets.
Must-see attractions include the former Jewish district of Kazimierz and the Galicia Jewish Museum; both included in our school trips. Auschwitz-Birkenau, the most infamous of Nazi Germany’s concentration camps, is perhaps the main reason people choose to visit Krakow.
UNCOVERING KRAKOW’S EMOTIONAL HISTORICAL LEGACY
There is evidence that there were people living in this area we now know as Krakow, as far back as 20,000 BC. Today a UNESCO World Heritage site, this city is the perfect destination for history students, particularly if school trips to Auschwitz are on the agenda.
Only a short drive of 40 miles to the west of Krakow stands the formidable and haunting site of the largest Nazi concentraion camp of its kind. Many of the buildings still stand and are a moving and bleak reminder of this important time in history. There is no doubt that a school trip to Auschwitz will stay with your students for many years to come
