Capital to the state of Bavaria, Munich is one of those cities where the modern and the traditional sit side by side, in a good mix of tall, modern buildings and nineteenth-century monuments.

Auschwitz Birkenau: The infamous German Nazi death camp. A tour to Auschwitz is one of the most frequent trips made by people visiting Kraków.

We live it to the teachers to decide if this should be included in the itinerary.

  • Our tour guides will properly prepare students for this experience. 
  • Dinner discussion on World War II in Poland


Wieliczka Salt Mine: Wieliczka Salt Mine is a UNESCO listed, historic, underground salt mine. After descending into the mine, we explore numerous caverns, visit an underground church and grand ballroom – yes, all made from salt.
