auschwitz campOur morning drive will take us to the next destination on our vacation, Auschwitz. We have three hours to visit the former concentration camp Auschwitz – Birkenau, listed since 1979 as a UNESCO’s World heritage site. Once the largest and most notorious complex of Nazi extermination camps. KL Auschwitz, was transformed by the occupying Nazis into an efficient forced-labor camp. It became the center for the systematic murder of Jews, Gypsies, Russian POWs and others considered undesirable by the Nazis. Over the years the camp was extended and eventually consisted of three main parts and more than 40 su­b-camps. The Nazi murders were stopped when the Soviet Army entered the camp in January 1945.
Our tour begins with a 15-minute documentary about the liberation of Auschwitz. See exhibits in surviving prison blocks, the gas chamber and the crematorium. Next we visit the larger Auschwitz II, better known as Birkenau. This portion of the complex was specifically designed to carry out the extermination of European Jews. The Martyrdom Auschwitz Museum was established on the site in 1947 and was added to UNESCO in 1979. At Birkenau go up to the watchtower above the entrance gate to see the view of the biggest Nazi extermination camp.
Wieliczka salt mineAfter lunch we visit the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine, an amazing Unesco underground world of wonders. The mine has been worked for 900 years and was one of the largest salt mines in the world with underground passages and 2000 caverns of various sizes. Legend has it that the salt mines were part of the dowry of the Hungarian princess, Kinga, when she married Boleslaw the Shy over 700 years ago.
