Absolutely amazing experience. I have always been intrigued by all the history I learned about this growing up. To see it all in person was so surreal. Definitely gives you a real perspective on what tragedies went on in this and other prison camp facilities. The guide takes you through the entire camp where you can see things first hand... More

It was November last year when we visited this place.... the tour guide although she's very young is very knowledgeable of the history. There are two tours in one day... one in 'Auschwitz and the other one in -Birkenau' . I had goosebumps as I learned about what happened during the war... I hated the Germans during this tour but...

This was a very u exciting but informative place once you got listening to the personal accounts of Jews living in Oswiecim both before and after the war- the museum does not dwell on the holocaust but help inform as to life for the other Jews too....sadly most seem to have moved away after the war, when life seems to...

It's a jump in the past, very interesting and touching, deep experience. Almost one hour from Krakow, not too far away. It deserves very much to be visited. Interesting and touching. Recommended👍👍

Really worth the trip. Lots to see and learn. Really a special feeling walking around knowing that those things happened at the very same spot.

You need to understand the history and true meaning of this place. For those who say "not exciting", "boring city" and so on, You don't understand this place. It's not a fun park. It's really deep historical feeling. If You don't know the history and don't like it, don't go there, This place shows reality and brutality of this historical... More

An incredibly haunting and lonely place. I dont think any of us who visit this place can ever really fully grasp the horrors that happened here. It is an absolute must visit for any age or culture. I believe this place is invaluable in reminding us of the terrible cruelty that mankind is capable of inflicting upon its own..

Always wanted to visit this place so when I managed to visit krakow I knew one day I need for a trip to Auschwitz. Traveling is a bit painful as if you don't know anything about krakow it's hard to get there. I... More
