BACK TO DAY TRIPS FROM ZAKOPANE
Auschwitz and Wadowice

Full day trip to Oswiecim (Auschwitz) and Wadowice

The territory of the biggest nazi death camp in Oświęcim symbolizes the Holocaust. At present it is open to tourists in its totality. To get the full idea of the place it is necessary to visit both parts of the camp - Birkenau and Auschwitz. The vastness of the area, primitive barracks for prisoners, ruins and remnants of other facilities, long kilometers of the camp's fencing and roads fully reflect what words fail to explain – expanse of degradation, cruelty and inhuman crime...
Having left Oświęcim you will go to Wadowice, Pope John Paul II's birthplace.
