Krakow, the former royal capitol of Poland, with its rich history, displays all the great European architectural styles – Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, baroque, and art nouveau. Find the world’s largest late-Gothic altarpiece within the darkened interiors of St Mary’s Basilica, and then step out into the sunshine to see the gleaming 16th-century Renaissance Cloth Hall, in the old town square.
Pay your respects with a visit to Auschwitz, the largest of the concentration and death camps of the “Final Solution” atrocities committed by the Nazis in World War 2.
Or get underground at the UNESCO world heritage listed Salt Mine Wieliczka. Opened in the 13th century, the mine produced table salt continuously until 2007.
