Płaszów Concentration Camp Tour

Meet your guide in Krakow's Rynek Główny, or main square, where we'll board a public bus to the former Nazi concentration camp at Płaszów, located 15 minutes away. 

Having arrived at the former camp, we'll remember the tragic events which took place here from 1943 onwards, when Płaszów began to receive thousands of Jews from the Krakow ghetto. As we walk through the remains of the camp, we'll learn about its past, including the mass executions that took place here.

We'll tour the different monuments in memory of the 10,000 people who lost their lives in this camp. We'll also see the house where the commander of the camp, where Amon Goeth lived, his office and the quarries where the prisoners were forced to work.

At the end of the tour, we'll head back to the original meeting point in Krakow for 2 pm.
