Excellent visit to the different points of the historic center of Krakow that are related to the Second World War. Despite the cold in December, the visit was well worth it. Luis, the 10-year-old guide, gave the feeling that he could spend hours explaining that in no time you were going to get tired.

World War II Tour of Krakow

After meeting at St. Mary's Basilica in the centre of Krakow at 6:45 pm, we'll begin our Second World War history tour of the Polish city.

How did the Nazi occupation of Krakow unfold? What happened in Krakow during the Second World War? What was life like for the inhabitants of the city during this time? We'll delve into the histroy as we explore its most important monuments.

Crossing Florianska Street, we'll reach Market Square, a significant site that witnessed both celebrations and public executions. Such was its importance during this period that the square was even named after Adolf Hitler during the Nazi occupation.

We'll visit some of the most important buildings during the Nazi occupation, such as the building where the Ordnungspolizei was based. We'll also discover some of the places where the Armia Krajowa, or Polish resistance, fought the Nazis.

Next, we'll head to the Collegium Novum, where our guide will tell you about one of the darkest episodes of the Second World War in Krakow. During our tour, we'll also stop at one of the Gestapo prisons and see the Katyn Cross, one of the symbols dedicated to the suffering of the Polish people.

We'll end our World War II tour of Krakow at the Grunwald Monument at 8:45 pm.
