Oswiecim

(4.7/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: museums
Known to most by its German name Auschwitz, the modestly sized city of Oswiecim sits at the foot of the Jura Mountains, just 50 km (30 mi) west of Krakow. The location of some of the most horrific moments of the 20th century, Oswiecim has managed to find a measure of peace over the last few decades, turning itself into a regional center of industry. Although most travelers just pass through on their way to the Holocaust memorials that once served as notorious extermination and forced labor camps, Oswiecim does contain a small but rewarding old town, featuring several churches and the remains of a medieval castle.

Where to stay in Oswiecim

Most visitors to Oswiecim come from nearby Krakow, where they can take advantage of the larger city's greater variety of accommodations. Oswiecim remains a small town with few lodging options, so if you wish to stay near the major attractions, consider the few mid-range hotels and guesthouses located near the city center. Before making your final selection, check your options for getting to the area's main sites, the former Nazi concentration and extermination camps situated about 80 km (40 mi) west of the city.
