History trips to Krakow

Krakow has a diverse, rich culture and is an essential destination for any student group studying modern history.

Whether taking a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter, following the inspirational Schindler's Trail or taking the emotional and poignant journey to Auschwitz, there are almost limitless learning opportunities for History students in this breathtaking city.

A range of immersive visits can help students to gain deeper understanding of key events in modern history; from the Galicia Museum and Schindler Factory & Museum to Auschwitz or Birkenau Concentration Camps. Similarly, meeting a Concentration Camp Survivor or Member of the Righteous Among the Nations gives students an insight to the real-life experiences and stories of those who lived through these times.
