Kazimierz- the district south of the Old Town. For many centuries Kazimierz was widely known as the home of the largest Jewish commune in Europe. Kazimierz was systematically destroyed during World War II. In the communist era, Kazimierz became one of Kraków’s dodgiest districts. Rediscovered in the 1990s, thanks to the fall of the communism. Kazimierz began its rebound. Every corner of Kazimierz is the witness of history. Today probably Kraków’s most exciting district. The key to the understanding of the popularity that Kazimierz enjoys today is its tolerance: two nations, two great religions existed here for centuries in harmony.

For centuries the town of Oświęcim was a quiet town, That changed with WWII when Oświęcim, known as ‘Auschwitz’ under German occupation, became the chosen site of the largest death camp in the Third Reich. Between 1.1 million and 1.5 million people were exterminated here. A 2 July 1947 Act of the post-war Polish Parliament established the Auschwitz- Birkenau State Museum on the ground of the two extant parts of the camp Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II Birkenau. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.
Visit Auschwitz Museum is almost a must if you are in Krakow. If you’ve decided to visit Auschwitz, you basically have two options: join a guided tour at the museum or visit independently for free without a guide. Unfortunately, a new online reservation system now makes the first option much more difficult than in the past. All visits must now be booked in advance through the website visit.auschwitz.org. As a result, you may find there are no tickets available. The unavailability of tickets online doesn’t mean you can’t visit Auschwitz when you want, but it does basically force you to sign up for a tour through an outside provider.
