Itinerary of Auschwitz Day Tour from Warsaw:

 

Transfer to the train station in Warsaw. Journey by train to Cracow. Upon arrival to Cracow, we will transfer to the city of Oświęcim, around a hour long journey away from Cracow, where a former Nazi concentration camp - Auschwitz Birkenau, is located. 

 

The Auschwitz I Camp was established by the Nazi Germans in 1940 in former barracks of the Polish Army. Today its buildings house a Memorial Museum, in which the history of the Second World War, the Holocaust and persecution of ethnic minorities is told. We will enter blocs number 4 and 5 that contain items found by the Red Army, whose troops liberated the camp on January 27th 1945. These items include: adult and child shoes, glasses, Jewish liturgical parchments, prosthetic limbs, cookware, suitcases, baby care items and human hair, as well as shoe paste from different countries. Continuing, we will see the patio with the Death Wall where prisoners were executed.

 

Then, we will proceed to adjacent bloc 11 with subterranean cells, where in September of 1941 Cyclone B gas was used on six hundred Soviet prisoners of war and 250 Poles.

In the cell number 18, Father Maximilian Maria Kolbe spent his last days, after offering to be sentenced to death by starvation instead of a father of a family. The pope prayed in this cell in 1979 and left a commemoratory candle. We will walk through the Counting Square, where prisoners were counted every day. There, the prisoners witnessed the execution of their comrades.

 

Later, we will enter the provisional Crematory number I. It was used by the Nazi Germans until 1943. Transfer to the Auschwitz II Camp. There, we will pass under the Death Gate and enter barracks made from wood and red brick. Furthermore, we shall walk through the selection platform and afterwards we will reach the International Monument. It is dedicated to the Victims, it is situated between the ruins of Crematories I and III. 

 

Return to Cracow. We will leave our car near the Wawel Hill.

 

We will walk through the two oldest streets - Kanonicza and Grodzka. In the gothic franciscan church we will admire the polychromy and modernist stained glass windows. The majority of them were designed by Stanislao Wyspiański. From there, we will proceed to the university buildings of the Cracow Academy, founded in 1364, by the king Casimir the Great. Today it is known as Jagiellonian University. The oldest building of the complex is Collegium Maius from 14th century.

 

Afterwards, we will proceed towards the Main Market Square, the largest medieval square in Europe. It dates back to 1257. It was built 10 years after a devastating Tatar invasion, which ravaged the city. We will walk through the Sukiennice, constructed in the 13th century. The building was remodelled in the 16th century, thanks to an artist from Florence, Santi Gucci. The building served as a market for all kinds of textiles, hence the name.

 

We will enter the Saint Mary Basilica, the most important church of Cracow's burgeoisie. The impressing wooden altar inside was built at the end of 15th century, by a German artist, Veit Stoss. The altar shows scenes from the lives of Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ. It is one of the most beautiful altars in Europe. Furthermore, we will pass through the Floriańska Street to reach the remnants of the city's defence walls. The walls were constructed at the beginning of the 13th century, however, the Saint Florian's Gate and the Barbican were built almost two hundred years later.

 

Our trip will end in front of the theatre dedicated to Julius Słowacki, which resembles the Paris Opera. Prior to its construction, the site was occupied by the buildings of the Holy Spirit Hospital.
