Hotels in Auschwitz and surroundings


Auschwitz is known world wide as the place of the Nazi Extermination Camp Auschwitz - Birkenau where over one million people were exterminated by the Nazi during the II World War. The two remaining camps are now the State Museum Auschwitz - Birkenau. In 1979 these places were recorded in UNESCO's List of Objects of World Heritage.
Auschwitz Castle is one of the top relicts of medieval defensive architecture and is worth a visit. Now in its southern part there is a collection of historical and ethnographic exhibits of Auschwitz County.
In the vicinity of Auschwitz there are some interesting places: Cracow (the former capital of the country with its Royal Castle and the coronation cathedral of Polish kings), Wieliczka (a medieval salt mine), Wadowice (birthplace of the Pope John Paul II), Kalwaria Zebrzydowska (Sanctuary of Virgin Lady) and Pszczyna (palace of duke Habsburg).
