1. Warsaw: Majdanek Concentration Camp & Lublin Guided Day Tour
Learn more about Majdanek Concentration Camp and the city of Lublin in Poland on a full-day guided tour. You’ll hear the history of the camp and how it fitted into the Nazi’s Regime plans during the Second World War. See the city of Lublin itself after the visit to the camp. After your pickup, your expert guide will escort you through what remains of the camp barracks, which was captured more or less intact in 1944. Hear how it was the first concentration camp to be captured by Allied forces and how it is unusual with it being located within the boundaries of a city. See the monument at the former front gate that symbolizes the conditions the prisoners lived in. After a traditional Polish lunch, visit the city of Lublin, often dubbed “Little Cracow”, “Vienna of the North”, and “Little Jerusalem”. As you stroll through the narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town, you’ll learn how Lublin was a very wealthy city with its palaces, sacral architecture, and tenement houses, all of which make it one of the most beautiful cities in East Poland.
