Tour description

This tour is an ultimate sightseeing combination for people willing to leave Warsaw in order to see one of the most popular districts of Krakow as well as one of the oldest salt mines in Europe, known as an underground city made of salt! You will not only see the largest synagogue complex and a World War II museum in Krakow, but you will also have a chance to admire Wieliczka Salt Mine, that has been in constant use since the 1300s. We will pick you up from your accommodation in Warsaw, provide all the transfers between the visited places and take you back to the capital. Naturally, you will be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide throughout the tour. • Small-group or private sightseeing • Door-to-door round-trip transfers • Key things to see in Krakow including the Old Jewish District and Wieliczka Salt Mine • Learn about the history of Polish Jewry • Explore Wieliczka Salt Mine listed among UNESCO World Heritage Sites

After we collect you from your accommodation in the capital, you can lean back and relax in a modern vehicle during our journey to Krakow – the most frequently visited city in Poland by foreigners and Poles alike. You will most probably start the tour with a visit to Kazimierz, the Old Jewish Quarter, known for its original, timeless architecture embellished with synagogues, dozens of antique shops, art galleries, as well as many other signs of Jewish culture. Steven Spielberg chose this place as a scenery for his award-winning movie Schindler’s List. On your tour around Kazimierz, you will also be guided to one of the oldest synagogues in Europe, which has been continuously active for over 500 years. You will also pay a visit to the Schindler's Factory – the place where Oskar Schindler saved over 1000 Jews. In order to commemorate those who were killed during the war, a museum of the World War II was established there. Afterwards, we will drive you to Wieliczka Salt Mine inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and known for its unparalleled giant sculptures, caves, chapels, and lakes. Wieliczka Salt Mine chambers refer to particular bygone events and characters, thus, it is also an ideal place to learn a little bit of Polish history. Last but not least, thanks to its salty brine air, the salt mine can be very advantageous for your health.
