8 Kolobrzeska, Bydgoszcz, Poland

Cracow is the most popular travel destinations in Poland. The main reason for that is a huge diversity of attractions available in the area. ITS Poland has been cooperating for years with many schools in Germany, Benelux countries and Scandinavia that regularly send their students to have fun and learn in Poland. Most students’ tours to Cracow include the Old Town sightseeing with Wawel Royal castle, Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and Wieliczka salt mine. These places are practically in all groups itineraries. Still, have you ever wondered about the teachers and caretakers that travel with their classes almost every year to the same places? Probably not but we have. This is why we always propose some additional points of interest for the groups regularly arriving to us, to makes their trips more memorable and unique. We want to share with you details of such unique sightseeing that we have organised for one of our groups in August 2022. The group had 27 participants (24 students and 3 teachers) and was staying in Cracow between the 22nd and 26th of August. We organised for them a trip about Jewish religious heritage in Kazimierz District and also about Jewish people history during WWII. The group visited the Old and Remuh Synagogues with cemetery and the Schindler’s Factory Museum. The choice of the sightseeing topic may not have been the most obvious but it definitely created a lot of space for thought and contemplation and was very developing for the students. We always encourage the teachers to make their own journeys and their students’ ones more interesting and memorable by adding some out of the beaten track experiences or sightseeing the usual places from some different often more memorable angle.
