... the hair of thousands of victims. All people who entered the camp had there hair cut off and right there in front of me proved that millions of people had died. We walked through a gas chamber and it really was an emotionally exhausting experience, it is not even possible for me to put myself in their place because I can't imagine that the world could ever be so cruel. I learned a lot from the tour guide and this place should be on every persons bucket list. We also went ...
... from the perspective of the Jewish history. Spent half a day at Schindler’s factory, and also a lot of time around the Jewish quarter. Went to every synagogue - the Old, the New, the High, Isaacs etc.
I went out to Auschwitz, which was far more intense than I even imagined possible. I also visited the salt mine – the miners have been carving figures and chapels out of salt since the 17th Century. Just ...
... blankets with the human hair shaved off the prisoners. There is a whole room in which is encased tonnes of human hair, which is quite frankly disgusting. After finished our tour of Auschwitz I we moved on to Auschwitz II - Birkenau, the death camp. The scale of this camp was terrifying. I have never seen something so large in my life, set out with such precision and order, all for the purpose of destroying other peoples lives. On previous travels through Cambodia, seeing ...
... each got a pretty cool thing, you might say it's the best thing. And then we ate pierogis until we almost threw up. They were gourmet, with crazy fillings like curry chicken/rice and goat cheese/spinach (two different ones). The traditional "ruski" ones were best though - cheese and potato. Then we strolled through the center square, had a euro glass of wine, then hopped on the night train to Prague to catch up with Nicole, Kayla, and the boys. ...
... joy was short-lived, however, when the roads proved to be like trying to drive over corrugated iron. The continual bouncing and rattling at 130km/h threatened to shake lose the fillings in my scull. And this went on and on, all the way to Prague. I’m still at a loss as to why the roads were like that, it’s almost like hundreds of tanks have crawled along these roads back in the day, which actually might be close to the truth.
After what seemed like forever, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ascot Hotel Krakow
Stayed in Ascot Hotel for 1 night only. Our room had no aircon, however the hotel staff provided us with a fan, at least this helped. Wouldn't recomment staying there for longer periods. Quick walk from main train station and city center, which is very nice. Overall, enjoyable.
Me alojé solo una noche en el hotel Ascot. Nuestra habitación no tenía aire acondicionado, aunque el personal del hotel nos dio un ventilador que, por lo menos, ayudó un poco a aliviar el calor. No lo recomendaría para estancias más prolongadas. Está a un paseo de la principal estación de tren y del centro, cosa que está muy bien. En resumen, es agradable.
Wir verbrachten nur eine Nacht im Ascot Hotel. Unser Zimmer hatte keine Klimaanlage, die Angestellten stellten uns allerdings einen Ventilator zur Verfügung, das hat zumindest Abhilfe geschaffen. Ich würde von einem längeren Aufenthalt hier abraten. Man kann den Hauptbahnhof und das Stadtzentrum schnell zu Fuß erreichen, das ist sehr schön. Im Großen und Ganzen gut.
New hotel with very stylish decor and very pleasant and helpful staff. Great location about 5 mins walk from both the main railway station and the market square. Excellent buffet breakfast. Expect some noise from ambulances nearby and also the railway behind but it was not as noisy as some other cities. Also check that your room is air-conditioned - not all are and Krakow can be really hot in summer.
This hotel is new so the interiors were of a high standard for a 3 star hotel.....however.....the noise (both street level and of the neighbouring rooms) is terrible and many of the rooms don;t have aircon. This literally made the room like a sauna so we were unable to sleep for 2 nights and the staff were unable to help us nor refund our money so we could stay in another hotel
El hotel es excelente, a excepción del ruido de las sirenas de las ambulancias y de la policía que había en la zona. Es céntrico, pero a la vez está lo suficientemente lejos del centro de la ciudad (a unos cinco minutos a pie) y de la estación de tren. El personal es amable y muy agradable. Volvería a reservar habitación aquí. Las excursiones se pueden reservar en el hotel, aunque este servicio no se anuncie.
This hotel was excellent apart from the noise of the police and ambulances in the area. It is central yet far enough from the city center (approx 5mins walk) and the train station. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I would book there again. Tours can be booked in the hotel although it is not advertised.
Questo hotel è eccellente a parte il rumore della polizia e delle ambulanze nella zona. È centrale ma abbastanza lontano dal centro città (circa 5 minuti a piedi) e dalla stazione dei treni. Il personale era cordiale e molto disponibile. Prenoterei ancora qui. Le visite possono essere prenotate in hotel anche se non è indicato da nessuna parte.
