Educational Visits

With numerous interesting educational and cultural possibilities, we will build a tailor-made school, college or sixth-form trip programme and itinerary to meet with your requirements and priorities. We can organise opportunities to develop language skills and to improve historical and artistic awareness.

For History, Religious Studies and Psychology groups there are numerous places to visit that invoke the memories and tell the turbulent story of Krakow's present and recent past. We highly recommend a guided walking tour of the old town, the Schindler's Trail and Jewish Museum, plus a deeply thought-provoking trip out to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration and Extermination Camps. Also Wawel Castle - the former royal residence of Poland.

If you are teaching Business and Economics then Prague is also a good choice with a selection of practices to discover. Let us arrange a visit to a Brewery, take a visit to the airport or see power generation in action at the regional Hydro-electric plant.

We recommend organising a guided walking tour to take in a number of sights and subjects from a local expert guide who can bring your subject to life. These can be focused on a number of subjects including History, Religious Studies, Psychology and Architecture.


Other Excursions

Also recommended is a half day guided orientation coach tour of the city, plus visits outside the city to the poignant Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camps and the magnificent Wieliczka Salt Mines. We can provide you with a guide, discounted group travel tickets and also a range of entrances and tickets for museums, galleries, exhibitions and general tourist visits to complement your study trip.
