Description

Explore an incredible underground world as you investigate the cathedrals, carvings, and passageways in the Wielczka Salt Mine. Learn about the mine's history, traverse its winding pathways, and stand in awe of its massive columns and open rooms, some more than 1,000 feet (305 m) below ground.

Descend into the depths of the salt mine, which feels like entering a vast underground city, complete with huge caverns and underground lakes. Visit chapels illuminated in dramatic and colorful lights, and learn about St. Kinga, the patron saint of miners.

Chat about the mine's history along the 1.5-mile (2.5-km) walking route, and feel free to ask questions of your guide along the way. From glittering chandeliers suspended from towering ceilings to intricate sculptures and religious carvings, there's always something new to discover around the next bend of this subterranean wonder.

Brilliant guide. Perfect size group. Very clear instructions of timings. Lots of stairs! Very very small lift to surface. Incredible.

The Wieliczka Salt Mines provides visitors with a unique experience to discover one of the most beautiful locations near to Krakow. A former functioning Salt Mine, visitors are guided around less than 1% of the 250km corridors. Along the route, visitors find themselves amongst vast chambers left from salt excavation in which beautiful carvings; statues and places of worship have been erected. The pace of the tour is good and it does not feel rushed. The entire underground tour is well-lit; well-built and makes you feel completely safe. Whilst the 58 flights of stairs at the start of the tour may be an issue for some, perseverance is rewarded (unfortunately I am not sure what provision - if any - there would be for disabled visitors). If you are near Krakow and want a couple of hours exploring something unique and beautiful, the Salt Mines is worth checking out.

Very well organised trip and very intersting place. Excellent rep from Cracow Tours (Konrad i think). Docked a star because guide ar mines wasnt the best and struggled with the fact that audio system wasnt working at all well. Overall though, very good.
