Krakow is one of the most popular cities in Europe. It is the second largest Polish city, but in terms of the number of tourists it is in the top. Krakow offers many attractions for all tourists. The most known attractions that can be found on site are, but trips are often organized outside of Krakow, because those areas also have many interesting places.
Not just the center square
Krakow is known for its beautiful market, which is visited annually by millions of tourists. There are many famous attractions on the market square and its surroundings. The most popular are St. Mary’s Church and the Wawel Castle. In addition, many tourists appreciate the beauty of the Cloth Hall and surrounding tenements.
Auschwitz Birkenau Tour
As mentioned earlier, in addition to interesting places in Krakow itself, it is worth going on one of the organized trips outside the city. One of the places that should be visited by anyone coming to this area is Auschwitz Birkenau. This German extermination camp is a place where many millions of people lost their lives. The victims were mainly Poles, who hardly anyone remembers.
Birkenau Tour (see more on the organizer’s website) is an unforgettable experience for a lifetime that leaves a lot of reflection. Where were the people when such terrible things happened here and up to eight thousand people of different nationalities died every day? It is a tragic place, but extremely important in the history. It is worth visiting this place to realize the enormity of violence and suffering which the Polish nation was subjected to, and yet Poles managed to regain their beloved independence
