Senior students invited to experience the wonders of Kraków

Thursday 16 November 2023 | By Megan Connor

After a successful trip visiting Ypres, the History Department is inviting students in Years 712 to experience the wonders of Kraków, Poland, between Friday 18 October and Monday 21 October 2024.

Kraków is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Poland.  As well as ample site-seeing opportunities, our tour includes a guided tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau, a guided tour of Wieliczka Salt Mine and a meeting with a Concentration Camp survivor or relative at the Galicia Museum.  We have arranged for an NST Educationalist Guide to lead our group throughout the trip.  The trip is an excellent opportunity for students to gain a real sense of what life was like for Jewish communities prior to and during the Second World War.  In addition to the history, students will also have the opportunity to experience the beautiful city of Kraków, which is home to the biggest medieval town square in Europe.

Accommodation for the trip is the Hotel Alexander I, a modern hotel located near Kraków’s Old Town. Facilities include multi-bed rooms with en-suite facilities, TVs in each room and a spacious dining area, perfect for school visits.

This trip will be an invaluable and unforgettable learning experience for our students. Sign-up details have been circulated, and we look forward to hearing from you.
