Berlin & Krakow: WWII History & Politics

Prices from: £369 (5 days 4 nights)

Contrast the beauty of Krakow, a city rich in medieval grandeur, with an Old Town listed as a UNESCO world heritage site and Kazimierz, an important Jewish Quarter, with Berlin and its powerful history, evocative landmarks and expressive style.  This fantastic school two centre school trip from Adaptable Travel offers the opportunity to explore both cities and their history.

Both cities carry great significance as a destination for students studying Nazi Germany and World War II due to the wealth of world class museums and historical attractions that bring to life the dramatic events of World War II in detailed fashion ensuring students never underestimate or forget the terrible acts that took place during the war.

Students can expect to learn how plans devised in the German capital were implemented with catastrophic effect in Krakow by visiting Podgorze Wartime Jewish Ghetto and the sombre experience of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Plaszow Concentration Camp. Inextricably linked by history, Berlin and Krakow are modern-day cities with a haunting past that are perfect for a dual centre tour of great historical significance

When planning your next history trip with Adaptable, you will work closely with our resident history experts to develop your perfect history itinerary. Contact Adaptable Travel today to start working with us to plan your next history trip.
