8 Kolobrzeska, Bydgoszcz, Poland

One of the biggest branches of our company’s activities includes organization of school trips. The most popular direction of such trips is Cracow. It gives an excellent opportunity to visit 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and study numerous works of art; immune students for a lifetime against prejudice and racism during study of WWII and Holocaust history and last but not list provides occasions for pure fun in the aqua park, amusement park or during various extreme activities. Quite often we work at the same time with a few classes from the same school travelling to this destination and now we want to share some details of this kind of event. The group counted 78 people and was arriving from Belgium. The whole sightseeing was arranged in French. They spent 3 days in Cracow (31.03-2.04). On the day of arrival they had 3 h of the Old Town sightseeing with 2 guides till 6 p.m. then they had 1 h of conference room to work on some teaching tasks connected with the sightseeing. At 7 p.m. they had dinner, some traditional Polish dishes but of course not to fancy as students usually like simple food and are also happy with fast foods. On the second day they explored WWII dark history during extended 6 h study visit in Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi German Concentration Camp Museum. Usually this is very emotional day, so to lighten the atmosphere a little bit after returning to Cracow the group took the Vistula river cruise and observed Cracow from the water level. After dinner they returned to their hotel. On the last day they had a visit to Wieliczka Salt Mine where they admired this geological marvel and a late lunch with karaoke party before they left to Belgium in their coach. All in all it was very productive and eye-opening trip, one of many that we organize every year. We always tailor schedules according to specific group needs but Cracow Old Town sightseeing, Wieliczka and Auschwitz-Birkenau are always must see points.
