    Wed, Jun 14, 2023
    KRAKOW, POLAND. Arrive in Krakow and transfer to your hotel.
  2. Day 2
    Thu, Jun 15, 2023
    KRAKOW. Get acquainted with your surroundings and take a deeper dive into the fascinating history of Krakow with a comprehensive city tour. Visit the Wawel Royal Castle ''' the world'''s very first designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and Poland'''s largest castle, located in the center of its Old Town. The Wawel Hill it stands upon features a limestone cave renowned for its connection to the legendary Wawel Dragon of Polish folklore, which you will learn more about during your tour. You will also venture into Krakow'''s historic Jewish Quarter and see the factory of Oskar Schindler, who was credited with saving 1,200 Jewish lives during World War II, and who was famously honored in the award-winning film Schindler'''s List. You will also be treated to a live performance of the Polish anthem by a trumpeter on the highest tower of Saint Mary'''s Church, otherwise known as St. Mary'''s Trumpet Call, a tradition since the 19th century. Enjoy the afternoon at your leisure to explore more of the city. (B)
  3. Day 3
    Fri, Jun 16, 2023
    KRAKOW. Prepare yourself for an emotional day as together, we explore a darker period in Poland'''s history with a visit to Auschwitz, the largest and most tragically infamous of Europe'''s labor and death camps. The main gate, barbed wire fences, buildings and barracks look much the same today as they did during the Holocaust, when 1.1 million lives were taken within the camp. It was liberated from January 17-21, 1945, saving 58,000 from further horrors. Though not for the feint of heart, this once-in-a-lifetime excursion will honor the memory of those who perished and promises to be one you won'''t soon forget. (B)

Whether heading to an underground church or exploring Roman ruins, this excursion is sure to surprise and delight you. If you prefer an active excursion, you can hike up to Castle Hill for breathtaking views of the city below. Later in the day, celebrate the joy of music when visiting the Opera House, followed by a reception and small performance. You will then visit the Liszt House and museum, previously home to one of Hungary'''s greatest composers and virtuoso pianists.
