Was in Auschwitz twice - very depressing and generally overwhelming - wouldn't recommend going there, to sensitive people. BTW. this camp is not in Krakow area, it still is about 1 hour trip, as far as I remember.
Had my Stag in Krakow myself, enjoyed every minute. Lovely people too. Plus a place that steeped in History is a must. Couldn’t recommend the country or place highly enough.
If you believe taking photos is disrespectful, then don't take any. But don't push your personal morals/beliefs on other people. Let others make their own mind up about how best to pay their respects.
Could someone recommend a similar deal but with a hotel much closer?? That hotel is quite far away from the square...
Just saw Schindler's list movie sday.... And recognized that name - Krakow
