This combo tour allows you to book the two most popular day trips from Krakow at one-low price.
The excursions are spread over two days however if you wish you can take both excursions on the same day.
A visit to Auschwitz is a sombre experience, yet understanding the atrocities that occurred here is an important means of ensuring such events never happen again. In 1979 Auschwitz was added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites and designated a memorial and museum. On this Auschwitz tour you will visit both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II (Birkenau).
You will also visit the Wieliczka Salt Mines. Over the centuries, devout and superstitious miners have carved fabulous figures, monuments and altarpieces out of its salt walls. These amazing works of art, in addition to the mine's historical importance, have earned the Wieliczka Salt Mine a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list.
