"A moving day trip" Auschwitz Tip by boltonian
Auschwitz, Krakow: 114 reviews and 259 photos
Auschwitz is about 90 mins away from Krakow.
You can get here by minibus (Bus Station 9 ZL) or Train (11 ZL)
Neither is particularly quick. The name of the train station (and bus) is Oswiecim.
A taxi between the 2 sites costs about 15 ZL.
I am sure I don't need to explain the saddness of this place.
It is free to get in, and it is much better to go very early as there are no other people there and you get the real feel of the place before it becomes over run with tourists.
In winter, it is very cold so wrap up warm.
The main site has a series of museum type displays to explain what happened.
The Birkenau site is a huge area. It is more of a tribute, with the site being preserved as it was left without displays etc.
Try to see both, but the Auschwitz site is the better of the two if time is limited.
