Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp, Poland

[nggallery id=55 template=”caption”]
After studying a lot about Nazis in school, I heard about this place twice on this trip, both times the persons who told me about this place looked exceedingly sad, both times they highly recommended this place if I ever stop by Krakow.  So here I am in Krakow, time to check it out.  I was tempted to take a tour but I was told later that you could simply take a bus yourself and it would be a lot more flexible and cheaper.  Next thing I knew I was on a 2 hour bus ride to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp.  I thought the tour was free, but it does cost some money if you come before 2pm.  Although the guide has been fantastic as we all could hear her explanations clearly through our intercom.  I would highly suggest coming here before 2pm even though if cost some money, because the place is quite big and you do have to take a bus going between the Auschwitz and Birkenau.
