Full description
Tour Schindler's factory with a licensed museum guide. Oskar Schindler's factory, featured in Stephen Spielberg's oscar-winning film "Schindler's List," employed thousands of Jews and saved approximately 1200. Next, walk through the streets of Podgórze and see the evidence of the gruesome events that took place during World War II. See a part of the undestroyed wall surrounding 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. Then you will 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, and 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.
