Religious Studies school trips to Krakow
Modern day Poland is still a profoundly religious society and a lot can be discovered on a Religious Studies school trip to Krakow. The old town square is dominated by the sixteenth century Cloth Hall, one of the city’s most recognisable icons. Positioned in the old town square, St Mary's church contains the oldest medieval altarpiece in the world, allowing your students to assess the role of the church in medieval times. Take your students on a guided walk around the Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter of the city. This area became a ghetto during WWII when 50,000 people were confined to just 320 buildings. The Galicia Jewish museum commemorates the victims of the Holocaust and celebrates Jewish culture. With so much religious history to uncover a school trip to Krakow will help students reflect on how religion has continued to thrive in this city.
