Our journey to Poland started early on Sunday morning. We went to Helsinki, capital city of Finland where our flight left after 8 pm. We arrived to Krakow after 9 pm at local time. We took a taxi and went to our hotel, after that we had some time to discover Krakow at night time and it was really really beautiful.

Because we arrived Krakow already on Sunday, we got a cultural day on Monday.
We already had an idea on Sunday, that it would be great experience to see Auschwitz on Monday, because it’s not so far away from Krakow. So in the morning we woke up early to get some breakfast and after breakfast we were ready to head to Auschwitz.
“Work sets you free.”
We visited both concentration camps, Auschwitz and Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Later at the evening we had nice dinner in the old town of Krakow.
