The Schindler's Factory & Ghetto & The Salt Mine in Wieliczka
The Oskar Schindler's Museum is very popular among tourists. First of all because the tragic events that took place in Krakow during the Second World War are shown in Stephen Spielberg's oscar-winning film "Schindler's List". The museum's atypical and modern exhibition will leave no one indifferent. Learn the story of a German entrepreneur who led many Jews through the war. The streets of Podgorze still keep evidence of those terrible events. You will see a part of the undestroyed wall around the ghetto, houses where thousands of displaced Jews used to live, the pharmacy "Under the Eagle", a monument with 68 chairs in the Heroes' Square in the ghetto.
