English speaking guide-driver
Regular car / minibus
Runs all year, Tuesday-Friday
Visit the best preserved Nazi concentration camp of the Holocaust – Majdanek Camp, a silent, not filled with tourists and touching museum. Explore a beautiful renaissance town Kazimierz Dolny afterward.
Majdanek was a Nazi German camp established on the outskirts of the city of Lublin during World War II. This site remains the best-preserved extermination camp of the Holocaust and, sadly, seems to be overshadowed by Auschwitz camp museum, which is way too overcrowded and commercialized nowadays. Majdanek is a place which can be visited without rush, in quietness and with respect to who ended their lives there.
The second part of the tour is a visit in Kazimierz Dolny town. It’s a pearl of Polish Renaissance, with the main square looking as if it has been untouched since the 16th Century. It is one of the most beautifully situated little towns in Poland and considered as one of the top tourist attractions.
- Visit the Museum of Majdanek Concentration Camp
- Feel the atmosphere of small Renaissance town Kazimierz Dolny
- Enjoy your time with educated and professional guide-driver
- Experience the lovely countryside of Poland

MORE ABOUT THE TOUR:
After the hotel pick up you’ll drive with your guide-driver to the thrilling museum – Majdanek Nazi Concentration Camp, near Lublin city (3 hours drive form Warsaw). Majdanek (aka KL Lublin) was a Nazi German concentration and extermination camp established on the outskirts of the city of Lublin during the German occupation of Poland in World War II. The camp, which operated from October 1, 1941 until July 22, 1944, was captured nearly intact because the rapid advance of the Soviet Red Army prevented the SS from destroying most of its infrastructure. Majdanek, also known to the SS as Konzentrationslager Lublin, remains the best preserved Nazi concentration camp of the Holocaust.
On the way back from Majdanek you’ll visit the lovely Kazimierz Dolny town. It’s a pearl of Polish Renaissance, with the main square looking as if it has been untouched since the 16th Century. It is a considerable tourist attraction as one of the most beautifully situated little towns in Poland. It enjoyed its greatest prosperity in the 16th and the first half of the 17th century, due to the trade in grain conducted along the Vistula. It became an economic backwater after that trade declined, and this freeze in economic development enabled the town to preserve its Renaissance urban plan and appearance. Over the years Kazimierz became an important location for the Polish Jewish community. Between the First and Second World wars, the Jewish population was about 1,400, reaching half the total population of the town.
