One of Poland's oldest cities, Krakow sits at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains, its historical town center nestled on the left bank of the Vistula River.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Mon): make a trip to Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square. On your second day here, appreciate the extensive heritage of Wawel Royal Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wawel Cathedral, then don't miss a visit to St. Mary's Basilica, and finally steep yourself in history at Muzeum Krakowa, oddzial Fabryka Emalia Oskara Schindlera.

Oswiecim ©
Known to most by its German name Auschwitz, the modestly sized city of Oswiecim sits at the foot of the Jura Mountains, just 50 km (30 mi) west of Krakow.
On the 5th (Thu), steep yourself in history at Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Plan my Oswiecim trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Krakow to Oswiecim takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In March, daily temperatures in Oswiecim can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to -1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 5th (Thu) to allow time for travel back home.
