Private 6-hour Car & Walking Tour
The tour is perfect for visitors who are interested in the Jewish history of Poland and the holocaust of World War II.
Treblinka was an extermination camp located 100 km (62 miles) from Warsaw. It operated from July 1942 to October 1943 and killed 850, 000 Jews from Central Poland and Europe.
It is a symbolic place marked by 17, 000 stones where you can feel the massive tragedy of the Jewish population during WW II.
If you want, we can extend the tour by visiting a typical sztetl of Tykocin which used to be a trade centre with 50% of Jewish population. We can still admire their wooden houses and one of the best synagogues in Poland from 1642 (now a museum).
If you want to change the program of the tour or have lunch on the way, let me know. I am flexible and will do my best to make you satisfied.
The route to Treblinka takes 1. 5 hours. On the way we can see typical villages of central Poland.
We visit the Treblinka Extermination Camp memorial site where you learn about the tragic history of all the people who came here. We see the railway line, the Monument to the Victims of Treblinka and 216 stones with names of cities and towns whose inhabitants were killed there. The site is surrounded by a beautiful and peaceful forest.
In the end we visit the Museum where we can see what the camp looked like and see films about it.
