Overview
Experience Auschwitz, a place not to be liked but to be honored. It is very meaningful by itself and it is important for everyone to understand what happened and have the opportunity to educate themselves.

    Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Be collected from your accommodation and transported in an air-conditioned minivan. Visit KL Auschwitz 1. Walk through the iron gate bearing the notorious slogan Arbeit Macht Frei, which means Work Sets You Free. See 22 brick barracks, which were prison for hundreds of thousands of victims of the Holocaust. The most chilling is block number 11, the so-called prison within the prison. Block 11 contained special torture chambers including dark chambers or standing cells where various punishments were inflicted on prisoners. The first attempts to kill people with Zyklon B took place in this block. The only preserved crematorium and gas chamber is located at the end of the camp.  After the visit to KL Auschwitz 1, travel in the minivan to KL Auschwitz 2 Birkenau. This part of the camp is 25 times larger than Auschwitz 1 and it was the largest of the death camps. Over 1,100,000 people were murdered here. Between 62 mostly wooden barracks first designed as stables are the ruins of 4 crematoriums and gas chambers, which were destroyed by the Nazis in an effort to hide the evidence of their crimes. End your visit at the Memorial and pay respect to all of the victims of Nazi's genocide.

The pick up with Royal Cracow Tours from Krakow town worked well, there was a film shown on the mini bus about Auschwitz which was excellent. However, we were a group of 40, far too many. In areas where we had to view in single file in narrow corridors, the Guide was leaving

it was terrible. inexperienced guide with too big of a group. ruined. she didn't even take us to the crematoria in Birkenau. if anyone is thinking about a tour use the official tour guys from Auschwitz museum only to avoid being ripped off as we were.
