What places in Krakow are worth visiting with students?


School trips have always been one of the best attractions on the education path. For students it is a chance to relax from disliked classes, and for teachers an opportunity for small holidays with their pupils. After some time, however, the most popular attractions, museums and school escapade cells become less and less interesting and boring - how much can you go to the church in Licheń or to the Warsaw mermaid? Krakow has many attractions that will certainly fill many a school trip - and it doesn't have to be Wawel, the Cloth Hall or St. Mary's Tower.

Museum of Municipal Engineering

Located at ulica Św. Wawrzyniec Museum of Municipal Engineering is a great attraction for both children and adults. An unusual collection of public transport straight from the nineteenth century, an exhibition of Krakow printing, which includes machines from the fifteenth to the twentieth century, an exhibition of historical, Polish cars and motorbikes, and the amazing atmosphere of old machinery as in steampunk films, is something visitors can count on. And if there is not enough for students or teachers, then in the part of the building there is the Garden of Experiments, where you can carry out various experiments and broaden the knowledge of engineering and mechanics in practice.

HistoryLand

Learning history can be one of the most exciting experiences in life - all you need is the right approach and the right place. One such is definitely www.historyland.pl. The Interactive Center for Discovering the History of Poland and Poles using mock-ups from Lego blocks presents the history of the country, allowing you to move into the middle of the Battle of Grunwald or feel like a captain of the ship in the Battle of Oliwa. Interactive elements and extraordinary experiences await the youth, children and adults while discovering the fate of the Polish nation. Certainly many students will change their minds about the history at school and the importance of events that took place even 600 years ago.

Old Lebanon quarry

No matter if you are a child, teenager or adult - a visit to the film set of one of the best films of all time, which is Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List", is always a great experience. In the old Lebanon quarry, where some production scenes were shot, to this day there was a stage design, among which stars such as Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes played. However, due to the theme of the film and the nature of the topics discussed, it is best to go there with older, more mature students who will appreciate the value of the place. To further deepen your knowledge about Oskar Schindler and the Holocaust of Krakow Jews, you can still visit his old factory at Lipowa Street.
