Oskar Schindler's Factory Tours

Oskar Schindler's Factory is one of our stops on the Memorial Route Tour. All travellers are very eager to see the Factory and the reviews show that this place is particularly popular. Back in time, it was a metal item Factory. Nowadays, the factory performs the function of a museum where we can experience something new and see the main exhibition named Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945. The exhibition shows the fate of Krakow and its inhabitants, as well as the Nazi occupiers. You will also get to know more about popular Oskar Schindler and his brave attitude and willingness to save the Jewish people.

Eagle Pharmacy Museum Tours

Take some time and visit another exciting place with an English speaking guide. The guide will give you all the necessary information to understand the true history of Kraków. The Eagle Pharmacy was run by a Pole, Tadeusz Pankiewicz. In 1941 almost all the pharmacies were closed. However, the only exception was the Eagle Pharmacy, where Pankiewicz was the only Pole allowed to stay at Jewish Ghetto in the Podgórze district. Apart from selling medicines, the pharmacy was a shelter for the Jewish people imprisoned in the ghetto. Also, it was a place of conspirational meetings and selling items which helped to change the appearance and avoid deportation to Auschwitz Birkenau. Nowadays, the Museum covers the history of Pankiewicz's life and tragic events in the ghetto. Definitely a great experience and a place worth paying a visit.

Pomorska Street Museum Tours

The construction was built in 1936 as a dormitory and tourist's hostel. However, in 1939 Dom Śląski became a headquarter of secret Nazi police - Gestapo. The building was transformed into a place with many cells and interrogation rooms where cruel corporal punishment and torture were carried out. To this day, we can read inscriptions scratched by imprisoned innocent people. To sum up, a trip booked with MrShuttle will cover all of these shocking but incredible sites which make you feel closer to the victims of World War II.

MrShuttle created a door-to-door tour with all the tickets included in the price. An English speaking driver will pick you up from your hotel, give you the museum tickets and answer all your questions during the tour. You will be transported from one place to another in a comfortable AC minivan. The trip covers three main places: Oskar Schindler’s Factory, The Eagle Pharmacy, and Pomorska Street.

World War II is considered one of the most tragic events in the history of mankind. During that time around 70–85 million people died. From all of the 40 sub-camps of Auschwitz, the most horrible genocide took place in places such as Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Kraków is situated only one hour away from Auschwitz Birkenau and that is why it played an important role in the War. Over there, Nazis established one of five major ghettos. People who lived in Krakow were particularly persecuted, and the Jewish community often had to hide their identity to avoid being moved to a concentration camp. Therefore, tours to Krakow and visits to numerous museums in the city are real-time travel. It’s a great opportunity to come to know the history and the struggle of the victims.

There’s no need to buy the tickets on your own. All the entrance tickets are included in the price. Our guide will give them to you before the tour.
