Visit Schindler's factory

The story of industrialist Oskar Schindler, who saved thousands of Jews from certain death during the Nazi era, achieved particular notoriety through the Hollywood film adaptation in Schindler's List. While original filming locations are also on view, the tour of the museum turned Schindler's Factory extends further than just the cinematic adaptation, however, offering a comprehensive contemporary historical look at the period of German occupation of Krakow.

The underground world with lakes and chapels carved in stone is an absolute must-see!

Make a day trip to the concentration camp memorial Auschwitz

Serious, but instructive and important: Not far from Krakow is the former Nazi concentration camp that has become synonymous worldwide with systematic murder and tyranny, and which today, as the Museum and Memorial Auschwitz-Birkenau, is a reminder not to let anything similar happen again in the world.

Oskar Schindler's Factory

When selecting the best sights in Krakow, the museum in Oskar Schindler's Factory should not be missed: the exhibition does not focus too much on Steven Spielberg's Hollywood film Schindler's List , but it shows in a poignant way a historical overview of life in Krakow under German occupation from 1939-1945 and the systematic disenfranchisement of the city's Jewish citizens until the mass murder.
