Day 2 CRACOVIA
Breakfast at the hotel and free day to tour around Rynek Glowry, where there are many historic buildings of Krakow. In the center of the square is the Renaissance building of the Canvas Market (Sukiennice), now one of the headquarters of the National Museum, which exhibits works of important Polish artists. In one corner of the square is the stone tower of the old Town Hall, dating back to 1300. In front of the square is the Basilica of St. Mary (Kosciol Mariacki). Its interior decoration is a work of art in itself, with its frescoes and its star-studded vault. Undoubtedly, we will not cease to be amazed at the magnificence of the altarpiece sculpted by Veit Stoss. Also in front of the square we can see the remains of the Romanesque church of San Adalberto, from the 11th century, which were discovered in recent excavations. Leaving the square we walk along Ulica Florianska (St. Florian Street) and through Brama Florianska (St. Florian's Gate), also known as Porta Gloriae (Glory Gate), as it was through which kings entered when returning from battle. It is the only one that remains of the 8 gates that the walled city had. We can end our tour in the Barbican, a circular bastion that was part of the original wall and only part that remains of it. The wall had 39 towers, which were defended by the guilds of artisans of the city: shoemakers, carpenters, builders, etc..
Day 3 KRAKOW - AUSCHWITZ - BIRKENAU
This day will be dedicated to the guided excursion in Spanish, included, to AUSCHWITZ - BIRKENAU.
The museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau is the place that preserves the memory of the most terrible organized death factory in world history. Auschwitz was the concentration camp built by the Nazis in the city of Oświęcim. By visiting this place each one of us will have the opportunity to know and meditate on the darkest intentions of the human soul, as well as the consequences of their realization. Everyone should visit this place so that the blackest pages of history are never repeated again.
During the tour you will have the opportunity to visit the permanent exhibition as well as the original camp buildings that constitute the main part of the Auschwitz museum. You will also visit the most important places in Birkenau. The visit, including the minibus trip, lasts from 6 to 7 hours. The visit to the first part of the museum lasts 2 hours. The visit to Birkenau lasts half an hour. Please note that the visit does not include any lunch breaks. When you return to Krakow, you will be taken to the place of departure.
Day 4 CRACOVIA
Breakfast at the hotel and free day to continue discovering the city without forgetting to see the Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz), was an independent city until the nineteenth century, but because of the Nazi occupation, the Jews were transferred by the Nazis to the ghetto of Krakow, and few returned.
with the consequence of transforming this neighborhood in an abandoned place and with very bad fame until little by little it was occupied by artists and university students who gave it a "cool" touch and turning it into a fashionable neighborhood. You can visit Hebrew museums and taste Jewish food. It is essential to visit the Factory of Oskar Shindler, a German businessman who settled in Krakow because labour was cheaper, but when he saw the aberrant mistreatment of the Nazi regime, he chose to prevent his employees from being taken to extermination camps, through all kinds of pretexts. It is said that thanks to Oskar, 1,000 Jews were prevented from dying.
