Auschwitz & The Holocaust

Prices from: £239

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 college 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. Also incuded information about 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.

The accommodation was perfectly suited to the group [other than the mini bars in the room which were removed by the hotel when asked], it was in fact, better than we expected. the Hotel was clearly within walking distance of the main square and close to a small shop for the needs of pupils. The organisation and activities were flawless, and the Ariel restaurant was amenable to changing the time of our evening meal, which was great for us. Our only complaint was that our return transfer to the airport was delayed, apparently by traffic. We think they forgot us, as the lady in the company had to ask how many people needed to go to the airport. Other than that, an excellent trip and I would use the company again as I believe, whilst the transfer issue was stressful, it was beyond their control.

The hotel was fantastic and there were no issues with transport or timings, other than the coach driver not speaking any English, making communication extremely difficult. However, because our Auschwitz tour was changed to the half-day tour after we had already made our booking, the students lost a lot of time in Auschwitz and didn't get to see much of Birkenau. Also, our tour time was quite late, so the guide would not take us to see any more of the site as it had already got dark.

Despite this, the Adaptable team were extremely efficient and were a pleasure to deal with.
