Krakow is simply one of the most inspiring and curriculum enhancing destinations for any history school trip group. Fortunately spared destruction during World War II, the medieval city of Krakow houses more artworks and historic buildings than any other Polish city and is the country’s most popular destination. Capital of Poland for more than 500 years and a setting for the Oscar winning film Schindler’s List, Krakow is an ancient city with a haunting past.
On a school trip to Krakow, students can expect to learn and gain a greater understanding of the atrocities committed by the Nazis in nearby concentration camps Plaszow and Auschwitz-Birkenau and how the city became a ghetto for Jewish persecution during World War II.
For an appreciation of Poland’s history before World War II, students can visit the impressive Wawel Castle, take a leisurely stroll around the Old Town Square and visit the Salt Mines to appreciate the natural splendours of Poland. With its medieval charm and gothic architecture, Krakow is a city blessed with historical landmarks and monuments that act as a poignant reminder of Europe’s turbulent past.
