What to Expect
After a pickup from Kraków's city center, travel to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, one of the oldest and largest salt mines in the world. With your included entrance fee, enter the mine and descend more than 200 steps into an expensive underground network. A guide shows you the way through a maze of tunnels, chambers, and stairways built over eight centuries. Learn about the fascinating history of the mine and browse a collection of antique mining equipment that dates back to the Middle Ages. Breathe deep in the mine’s mineral-rich microclimate, which is thought to have health benefits, and admire detailed shrines and sculptures carved entirely from salt rock. You're dropped off at a convenient point in central Kraków after the tour. As a bonus, receive a free Kraków sightseeing audio guide when you book.

Dear Gary, I have checked your case. Unfortunately you were waiting in wrong place. The correct meeting point for your trip was at Pawia 4-6 street in Kraków (Between Pawia 4 and Pawia 6). Since we did not receive direct phone number to you (reservation made by Hotel Station) we could not contact you directly, therefore we contacted the reception desk immediately after the driver informed us that he cannot find you. Unfortunately the hotel's reception desk could not help us thus we were forced to let the driver go due to danger of delay. My recommendation is to check the meeting place by the exact adress since some navigations like google maps can be wrong, unfortunately we have no influence on these applications. In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@discovercracow.com Cheers,

Hi there, We are sorry if this part of the tour was not comfortable for your. That lift is original part of the salt mine exhibition which was oryginally used during its work time. Also it is the only fast way to get back on surface. Cheers! :)

Highly recommended! Me and my partner booked through Get My Guide- slightly expensive but worth it. Picked up promptly, friendly driver. Once in a lifetime to see inside a salt mine over 700 years old. Tour guide was knowledgeable and approachable.
