We will have a short breakfast stop at Wroclaw where you can check out the Market Square and the St. Elisabeth Basilica.
Our next stop will be in Krakow, where you will have free time to spend for lunch and sightseeing. Krakow is the second-largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. It is known for its well-preserved medieval core and Jewish quarter. Its old town – ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls – is centered on the stately, expansive Rynek Glówny (market square). This plaza is the site of the Cloth Hall, a Renaissance-era trading outpost, and St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church. We will stay at a ****hotel in Krakau.
Wieliczka Salt Mine
On Sunday we will check out of the hotel after breakfast and head to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. From Neolithic times, sodium chloride (table salt) was produced there from the upwelling brine. The Wieliczka salt mine, excavated from the 13th century, produced table salt continuously until 2007, as one of the world's oldest operating salt mines. The Wieliczka Salt Mine is now an official Polish Historic Monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its attractions include the shafts and labyrinthine passageways, displays of historic salt-mining technology, an underground lake, four chapels and numerous statues carved by miners out of the rock salt.
In the afternoon we will either visit Auschwitz Concentration Camp OR Schindler's factory.
Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory
is a former metal item factory in Krakow. Operating here before DEF was the first Malopolska factory of enamelware and metal products limited liability company, instituted in March 1937. The company was established by three Jewish entrepreneurs. In June 1939, the company applied for insolvency. On 1 September 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland and WWII broke out. On 6 September, German troops entered Kraków. It was also probably around that time in which Oskar Schindler, who was a member of the NSDAP and an agent of the Abwehr, arrived in Kraków and took over the factory. Schindler in this respect was initially driven by economic reasons—employing Jews significantly decreased the costs of recruitment, as they did not receive any compensation. But in the end he managed to rescue his workers from death in concentration camps.
In late afternoon we will drive to Katowice and check in the hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore Katowice. It is the 11th-most populous city in Poland, while its urban area is the most populous in the country and one of the most populous in the EU.
Monday morning we will check out of the hotel after breakfast and have a stop in Dresden on our way back home.
