Full description
Take a tour with a licensed museum guide of Schindler's factory, featured in Stephen Spielberg's oscar-winning film "Schindler's List." Learn about the story of a German entrepreneur who helped many Jews throughout the war. Then, walk through the streets of Podgórze and see the evidence of the terrible events that took place during the Second World War. See a part of the undestroyed wall around the ghetto, houses where thousands of displaced Jews used to live, the pharmacy "Under the Eagle", and the Empty Chair Monument in the Heroes' Square, with its symbolic 68 chairs. Next, begin the second half of the tour and be driven to Wieliczka, a small town 10 kilometers from Krakow. Visit one of the largest old salt mines in Europe and explore it at your own pace without a guide. The depth of the 700-year-old mine is 340 meters, the total length of corridors and tunnels is over 245 kilometers. Walk along a route of more than 3 kilometers and see 20 halls, including the largest, St. Kinga's Church, named for the patroness of miners. Admire the underground church's interior, richly decorated with chandeliers and sculptures of saints carved out of salt. Experience the special curative microclimate in the mine and learn about the sanatorium, 135 meters below ground.

Fantastic experience, Olga was our tour guide for Schindler's factory and the Jewish ghetto, then Krzysztof drove us to the salt mines. Both very knowledgeable and very good tour guides. I can't wait to get back to Poland

Wonderful experience! The guides are great at explaining and have great knowledge in history and brings everything into life. Would highly recommend, the tours are operated separately but very successful and we weren’t lost and guided all the way.
