From Kraków: Wieliczka - Salt Mine
US$39.45
Overview
The Wieliczka salt mine is one of the most treasured monuments in Polish cultural history. Each year over one million people from over the whole world visit this site is. This unique salt mine is listed on the UNESCO Cultural and Natural World Heritage List since 1978, placing it even higher on tourists’ „to do list”.
What to Expect
Visitors walk through a 3.5 kilometers long network, at a depth ranging between 64m and 135m. Discover the wonderful underground chapels, charming underground lakes, original devices and tools and mining tunnels. All this tells the story of the daily struggle of miners with the elements, their hard work, their passion and belief as well. The miners left in Wieliczka dozens of sculptures and bas-reliefs cut out of the salt, keeping their work alive for many further years.

During visiting there is around 800 steps to go down that is why we recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
Temperature inside salt mine ranges between 14° and 16° C.
