Krakow Airport

Airport Car Hire

Chances are if you haven't been to Krakow, you know many who have. It is the tourist mecca of Poland and sees tens of thousands of Brits visit it every year. And for good reason — the city is absolutely stunning. And here are the biggest tourist draws near the city; many visit the city particularly to visit Auschwitz

  • Auschwitz -Birkenau - Many visitors come to Krakow with the sole intention of visiting what has become the dominant symbol of the Holocaust. The site of the Nazi extermination camp is about 65 km west of Krakow in the town of Oświęcim. Auschwitz I, with the famous Arbeit Macht Frei gate, is now a museum with historical exhibits and the only remaining gas chamber, though it was reconstructed after the war. The museum requires visitors to use a tour guide during the busiest times of the day. Auschwitz II, with the notorious railway entrance, is 3 km away in the village of Brzezinka. This, the largest part of the camp, serves more as a memorial with ruins of buildings, the ponds where victims’ ashes were dumped, and a large memorial in different languages. It is free to walk around during all hours when it is open. 
  • Many companies advertise tours of Auschwitz in Krakow’s old town. It should be noted that the cost of these tours mostly comes from the transportation. If you have a rental car, it is better to just rely on the guides that the museum itself offers.  Do also keep in mind that the site is not a tourist site but a memorial to the more than million victims whose final resting place it is and treat it with the solemnity it deserves. 
  • Wieliczka  - Located just outside of Krakow, Wieliczka is a small town known for its salt mine which had been operating for centuries when it ceased operations in 2007. The tour of the mine takes visitors to a small portion of the overall mine but includes highlights of statutes and the Chapel of St. King, an impressive cathedral. There is also another tour that includes the history of salt mining in the area. Finally, the mine includes a health resort where it is possible to spend the night. Do be sure to bring warm clothes as the temperature underground is lower.
