Full description
Wieliczka Salt Mine is a virtual underground city, with magnificent chambers chiselled from rock salt, amazing underground saline lakes, majestic timber constructions and unique statues sculpted in salt. The mine combines many centuries of tradition and modernity, the history of several hundred years and an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure. During the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to see a completely different image of the mine and learn about the legend of Princess Kinga and how she brought the salt treasure to Polish land. Half way along the route, you can see the wondrous chapel dedicated to the princess and the saline works of art decorating the chapel. And at the end of the tour take a moment for reflection with a light and sound spectacle on the shores of one of the saline lakes.

    I highly recommend visiting the salt mine for both the charm and the experience. The punctual driver is very nice and accompanied us to the queue for our tour in Italian and provided us with the newly arrived tickets. At the exit he was waiting for us to take us directly to the house. The experience of the mine was very interactive and also quite lively during all the 800 steps that went down to reach 135 meters underground.

    The salt mines are beautiful, from Krakow with the minivan we have about 3 quarters of an hour to get there, so very little. The driver picked us up at the scheduled time and showed us where we wanted, not outside the hotel. The very kind driver, he waited with us for the time we entered, and at the exit he was found in the parking lot to return, all very organized. Tour that I highly recommend, and worth what you spend. However, those who suffer from anxiety may not be able to go, because they go down many meters underground, so it may not be favorable if someone suffers. Finally, I'd give 10 stars if you could, everything perfect.

    We were a group of 6 people and have booked with hotel pickup. Everything worked perfectly. We were picked up punctually at the hotel and brought to the salt mine. There we got our tickets from the driver and were accompanied to the meeting point for the German tour. The mine is impressive, the guidance was exciting. Due to high visitor numbers we did not get back up to the agreed date and meeting place in time, but we could contact the driver telef. And he collected us. Very good service.
