"Auschwitz/Birkenau" Poland Things to Do Tip by a.g.roberts

Poland Things to Do: 398 reviews and 656 photos


Though it is rather a sombre activity, a visit to Auschwitz/Birkenau is really something no one should miss while in Poland. They are located only about an hour's bus ride from Krakow. Auschwitz has been turned into a museum with some especially chilling displays of personal articles taken from prisoners as well as a lot of the history of Poland's role in the War. Birkenau has been left as a monument and has been left as it was when the Nazis abandonned it at the end of the war.

Address: Ocweicim (about an hour's bus ride from Krakow)

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
