Summary of The Day: Krakow’s location offers many interesting and significant sites to reflect the country’s recent turbulent history, such as the Wieliczka Salt Mine, the former Nazi concentration camp (Auschwitz) and the renowned and moving Schindler Factory Museum. In addition, see the beautiful Tatra Mountains and Ojcow National Park. Hop off at Kosciuszko Mound to learn about some of the region’s colorful history and marvel at some amazing views.
There are numerous historical monuments to inspire you including Wawel Castle and its Dragon Legend; the main Market Square with its imposing Barbican, Krakow Cloth Hall and St. Mary's Basilica; plus Kazimierz - a place where Christian tradition is combined with Jewish tradition, as ancient synagogues and typical Jewish restaurants co-exist with modern cafes and nightclubs. Krakow's historic centre is also on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
