In 1944, more than 2,000 people lived there. Hitler himself spent over 800 days in the Wolf's Lair. On July 20, 1944, Colonel Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg made an unsuccessful attempt on Adolf Hitler’s life. Hitler survived the explosion and brutally dealt with his opponents.
Wolf’s Lair is not only the bunkers; it’s a place where crimes against humanity were planned.
Here, it was decided to build new concentration camps, use prisoners in the German arms industry and take away lives of hundreds of people from European nations.
There were plans to enlarge the complex, but the works were never completed due to the rapid advance of the Red Army during the Baltic offensive in the autumn of 1944. On January 25, 1945, the Wolf's Lair was blown up and abandoned 48 hours before the Soviet army arrived.
Visiting this one-in-a-kind place is a truly remarkable experience and allows you to learn more about the history of World War II and Hitler's philosophy. The atmosphere of war is still floated in the air of the ruins, and the whole complex is a perfect example of Hitler's megalomania and his entourage.

Krakow, one of the most beautiful Polish cities, has a long history of traditions which reaches back even further than a thousand years. Everyone who visited this city at least once will not forget the atmosphere of the old castle walls, the Wawel Hill with the dragon's cave, stretching just above the lazily flowing Vistula, a charming market with the outstanding St. Mary's Church and lots of greenery.
Krakow and Oswięcim
When in Krakow, you have to visit 70-kilometer away Oswięcim where the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp was used to be. In 1979, the camp was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a place associated with the Holocaust and mass genocide. Founded as a labor camp, it later became a place of terror and extermination.
German concentration camp in Lublin, coloquially called Majdanek, was created by the decision of Heinrich Himmler. Built in the autumn of 1941, the camp was initially called Kriegsgefangenenlager der Waffen SS Lublin - a prisoner-of-war camp, and in February 1943 it was renamed Konzentrationslager Lublin - a concentration camp.
Kazimierz Dolny is one of the most valuable and charming places in Poland. This city is known for its connection with art and artists.

Kazimierz is a unique place because of its cultural heritage and long tradition of painting, literary and creativity.
