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.
Explore Oswiecim's surroundings by going to Gliwice (Muzeum w Gliwicach – Radiostacja Gliwice, Palmiarnia Miejska, & more), Zamek Lipowiec (in Chrzanow), Silesia Park (in Chorzow), Zabrze (Kopalnia Guido & Galeria Zabrze), Kopiec Wyzwolenia (in Piekary Slaskie), The Castle of Pszczyna (in Pszczyna), Ogrodzieniec Castle (in Ogrodzieniec), Wieliczka (Cracow Saltworks Museum - Salt Mine Location, Wieliczka Salt Mine, & more), Zar Mountain (in Miedzybrodzie Zywieckie), Aquadrom (in Ruda Slaska), Historic Silver Mine (in Tarnowskie Gory), Jezioro Paprocanskie (in Tychy) and Gora Zamkowa (in Cieszyn). There's more to do: get engrossed in the history at Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau and examine the collection at Jewish Museum and Synagogue Auschwitz.
