Day 1. Arrival to Warsaw. Accommodation in “Apartment 8th floor”. Visiting the Warsaw Uprising Museum, visiting Warsaw with a guide.
Once described as the Paris of the East, Warsaw was believed to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world until World War II, bombed at the start of the German invasion in 1939. Deportations of the Jewish population to concentration camps led to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943 and the destruction of the Ghetto after a month of combat. A general Warsaw Uprising between August and October 1944 led to even greater devastation and systematic razing by the Germans in advance of the Vistula–Oder Offensive. Warsaw gained the new title of Phoenix City because of its extensive history and complete reconstruction after World War II, which had left over 85% of its buildings in ruins. Nowadays, Warsaw is one of Europe’s most dynamic metropolitan cities.
Day 2. Arrival to Krakow. Accommodation at the Hotel. Visiting Krakow with a guide, a walk around Krakow to see the most beautiful architectural monuments of Krakow.
Krakow is one of the most culturally and politically significant cities in Poland. It was the central site of the Nazi General Government during WWII, and there’s still a residual feeling of solemnity here that’s especially apparent during visits to the Plaszow Concentration Camp and the Oskar Schindler Factory. Both the Historic City Centre and the Jewish District are brimming with cafés, shops, and pubs, and the 10-acre Main Market Square is a medieval feast for the senses.
Day 3. Journey to Auschwitz. A visit to the Concentration Camp Museum in Oświęcim.
KL Auschwitz was the largest of the German Nazi concentration camps and extermination centers. Over 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives here.
The post-camp relics are protected by the Museum created in 1947. The Memorial today is i.a. the Archive and Collections as well as research, conservation and publishing center
