There are some lessons that simply can’t be taught inside the classroom alone. Luckily, you can take a study trip to Kraków! Beneath its gothic beauty, you’ll find a city steeped in history and harrowing tales of the past. With a tailored travel itinerary, your students will get a glimpse into life under Nazi rule and the devastating impact it had on so many people’s lives.


  • Walking tour of Kraków and the Jewish Quarter
  • Auschwitz-Birkenau
  • Galicia Jewish Museum (with a Q&A with a holocaust survivor)
  • ‘Kraków under Nazi Occupation’ exhibition (housed within Oskar Schindler’s former Enamel Factory building)

Your travel itinerary could look like...

Day 1

Front view of Wawel Castle and Cathedral in Krakow

Off the plane and straight into your itinerary! You’ll begin with a guided walking tour of Kraków, where your guide will show you the striking landmarks of the city. Some of these include the magnificent Wawel Castle and Cathedral, the gothic St Mary’s Basilica and the Old Town’s Market Square – a UNESCO heritage site in itself!

The tour will also introduce your students to some areas connected to the city’s dark past. One such place is the central square within the Podgorze district, where you’ll find a sobering memorial to the people who lived in the former Jewish ghetto.

Day 2

Front view of the main entrance gate of Auschwitz on train tracks

Today you’ll be visiting the notorious former concentration camp, Auschwitz. A guided tour will unveil the suffering and inhumane conditions that the Nazis inflicted on so many people during WWII. You’ll cover a lot of important themes during the tour of the camp and through the various exhibits displayed in the museum, so it’s a trip that’ll really give your students pause for thought.

After delving into such heavy content, use the afternoon to explore more of Kraków’s Old Town and maybe sit in one of the city’s parks for some quiet reflection. After dinner, enjoy some lighter entertainment and get into the competitive spirit – how does an evening of bowling sound?

Day 3

Galicia Jewish Museum in the Jewish Quarter Entrance

Return to the Jewish Quarter to visit the Galicia Jewish Museum, where your group will see Jewish history from a whole new perspective! This museum challenges the potentially harmful stereotypes and misconceptions associated with Jewish history, so it’s definitely worth visiting if you have time. The museum can also arrange a Q&A session with a Holocaust survivor, making it an experience that your students won’t forget easily.

For your final stop, make the 15-minute walk across the Vistula River to ‘Exhibition Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939-45’, housed within Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory. The exhibition tells the story of Kraków’s inhabitants during WWII and how the arrival of Nazi Germans disturbed the city’s history of Polish-Jewish relations. Your students will have a lot to think about on their return journey home, and the lessons of this trip will stay with them long after your plane has touched down.
