Experiencing the haunting Auschwitz and being astounded by the Wieliczka Salt Mine are two of the major things to do when visiting Krakow and this ticket combining these two sites offers great value.
Auschwitz-Birkenau Tour (6.5 hours)
Auschwitz is a haunting site of genocide where approximately 1.5 million people were killed during WWII's Holocaust. Today, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it poignantly commemorates the lives of those who died within its walls and fences and is a must-visit for all.
The Martyrdom Museum was founded in 1947 covering the area of KL Auschwitz (Auschwitz I) in OÅwiÄcim and the Birkenau camp (Auschwitz II) in Brzezinka. It comprises approximately 150 buildings and 300 ruins and the original roads, fences, watchtowers and railway ramps have all been preserved. What's more, the buildings house the collection of original exhibits and documents.
Your tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau includes a visit to Auschwitz I - the administrative centre of Auschwitz death camp - and Auschwitz II, designed and constructed quite simply as an execution facility.
As you explore the gas chambers, crematoriums and exhibition halls inside the old prison blocks, listen closely as your guide sensitively explains the who, how, where, when and why of this haunting place and the key events in its history.
Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour
The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine is one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland and is product of multiple generations of miners who hand-carved it from blocks of salt. And this subterranean world of pits, tunnels and huge rooms have to be seen to be believed!
Your guided tour takes you from 210 to 440 feet (approximately 64 to 135 meters) down, passing through galleries and chambers where traces of mining activity have been preserved. Along the way you will also see many examples of sacred art and themed compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends.
One of the undoubted highlights is the spectacular Chapel of the Blessed Kinga - a huge, underground church where everything, from the chandliers to the altarpieces, have been chisselled out of salt.
Also, don't miss the world's largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today.
Tour start times
Please note, the Auschwitz element of your tour is available either in the morning or the afternoon. However, the Salt Mine element of your tour operates at a set time throughout the year.
