Unless you´re tarveling to Poland, you´re likely to begin krakow tours. Fifteen kilometres southeast of Cracow is the salt mine at Wieliczka. The descent to the first of the three levels included in the wieliczka salt mine tour, 65 metres down, is either by clanking lift or wooden stairway. Most visitors choose to Auschwitz tours. The infamous Nazi death camp, on the outskirts of Oswiecim, is a compelling memorial to man’s inhumanity. Most of the Auschwitz camp buildings and the entrance gate inscribed “Work brings freedom” have been preserved as the Museum of Martyrdom.
