Zakopane - the vibrant heart of the Tatra Mountains
Wednesday or Saturday morning

In the 19th century Zakopane was a sleepy village inhabited by the Polish highlanders who - living for years in isolation - created their own unique culture. The special atmosphere and natural beauty of the place was discovered by Tytus Chałubiński. In a short time, artists and crème de la crème of the society declared Zakopane their favourite place in Poland, where they rested, created works of art and had affairs... Currently, the town is visited by thousands of tourists who, desiring to get to know its tradition, often complain about the "cheesiness" of 21st-century Zakopane. That is why we decided to show the face of "the winter capital of Poland" and its surrounding area which still reflects the charm of the past and the beauty of nature.

The price includes: guided tour, Gubałówka cable car ticket, entrance ticket to a museum, transportation.

Additional information: We suggest taking something warm and waterproof to wear.

Duration: 9 hours

The Dunajec River Gorge and Niedzica Castle
Monday or Thursday morning

Flowing through the Pieniny, the Dunajec river forms a curving, rocky gorge of about 9 km. The gorge is surrounded by walls which are a couple of hundred metres long, and whose limestone cliffs blend beautifully with the forests that grow on them. The unique landscape of that area attracts crowds of tourists from all over the world each year, and rafting on the Dunajec is without a doubt the biggest tourist attraction in Poland. A Dunajec Rafting Trip starts at the marina in Sromowce-Kąty, is 18 km long and takes about 2-3 hours, depending on the water level. Rafting takes place on specially adapted, safe rafts made of five canoes. One raft takes 10-12 people at once and is run by two experienced rafters. The Polish-Slovak border runs along the most part of the Dunajec Rafting Trip route. Another attraction of the tour is a visit to Niedzica Castle, built in the 14th century by the Hungarians to protect an important trade route leading through the Dunajec Valley, and related to a remarkable story of the Incas who found refuge here.

The price includes: tour with a licensed guide, entrance tickets, transportation.

Additional information: We recommend taking a raincoat and a sun hat.

Jewish Culture Route
Wednesday or Sunday morning

For many centuries Jews played their part in creating the history and culture of the city of Kroke, as Kraków is known in Yiddish. Before World War II they made up as much as 25% of the city's population. A tour around Kazimierz - the former Jewish district, preserved in excellent condition until today - will introduce you to the world of their rich culture, customs and history. It was there that the renowned philosopher Mojżesz Isserles (called Remuh) taught, Helena Rubinstein was born, who is considered to have been one of the richest women in the world, and the esteemed director, actor and screenwriter Roman Polanski spent his childhood. The old Jewish district, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, became an even more recognisable landmark in Europe following the release of the famous "Schindler's List". You will be introduced to the history of the extermination of the Jews of Kraków, which is the background for the events described in the Spielberg's film, as you will be wandering the streets of the former ghetto. That is the place where Jews were locked up during World War II, and they were sent to death camps from there. A display in the Schindler's Factory Museum will complement the information, which is the story of Kraków and the fate of the Polish and Jewish population during World War II, but also about the Germans - occupiers who arrived here on 6th September, 1939 and brutally stopped a centuries-old history of Polish-Jewish Kraków. The story of World War II mingles with everyday life there, and private life with the tragedy that affected the whole world.

The price includes: tour with a licensed guide, tickets to the Synagogue, the Remuh Cemetery, and Schindler's Factory, transportation.

Duration: 4 hours

Krakow City Tour
daily morning

Our tour of the Old Town, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, begins with a brief visit to the old Jewish district of Kazimierz, inextricably linked with the history of the Jews of Kraków. Kazimierz was buzzing from the late 15th century to the tragic years of the Holocaust. After 1989 there was a wave of return migration to Kazimierz, and in 1993 Steven Spielberg shot his "Schindler's List" there, thereby making Krakow and Kazimierz an even more recognisable landmark in Europe.
Then we will go to the Wawel Hill, over which tower the Royal Palace with its impressive arcaded Renaissance courtyard and the famous Gothic cathedral - the place of coronation and the necropolis of Polish kings. After visiting the Cathedral and the Royal Chambers with a great hall called "Poselska" (The Envoy Hall), whose ceiling with 30 carved human heads and an impressive collection of tapestries woven in Brussels will make you astonished, we will go to the oldest university college - the Collegium Maius, with a beautiful Gothic courtyard, to finish the tour in the heart of Kraków - the Main Market Square - the largest medieval square in Europe with St. Mary's Church - a soaring, Gothic church inside which you can admire the impressive altar by Wit Stwosz (Veit Stoss).

The price includes: tour with a licensed guide, entrance tickets to the Royal Chambers, the Cathedral, and St. Mary's Church, transportation.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum
daily morning

The tour of the Museum, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, comprises both parts of the former concentration camp - Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau - and a documentary film presenting the first moments after the camp was liberated. The Auschwitz camp has become a symbol of terror, genocide and the Holocaust. It was established by the Nazis in 1940 in the suburbs of the city of Auschwitz, which was integrated into the Third Reich. The direct reason for the establishment of the camp was the growing number of mass arrests of Poles and overcrowding of the existing prisons. Initially, it was supposed to be another concentration camp created by the Nazis from the beginning of the 1930s. That was the function of Auschwitz for the entire period of its existence, even when, from 1942, it became one of the centres for"Endlösung der Judenfrage" ("the final solution of the Jewish issue") at the same time - the Nazi plan to murder the Jews living in the territories occupied by the Third Reich. The Auschwitz camp, until the end of its existence, was first and foremost a place of extermination. Even if from 1943 mortality was reduced in other camps to conserve manpower, in Auschwitz, to which continually new shipments were coming - mostly of Jews - to supply the camp labour, human life never meant too much. Due to the role that Auschwitz played in the implementation of the Nazi extermination plans, it has become a world-famous symbol of the Nazi genocide, in particular the destruction of the Jews. Today, on the area of approx. 200 hectares you can see preserved ruins of the gas chambers and places filled with human ashes, primitive barracks for prisoners and miles of the camp fence and roads.

The price includes: tour guide assistance, documentary film, guided tour around Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau, headphones, transportation.

Additional information: The tour takes approx. 3.5 hours. There is a 15-minute break during the tour, we recommend taking something to eat.
