      This mine is incredible! But the guide was not up to par (spoke in a low voice in a monotonous way: difficult to follow). Not enough geological info, but is it due to the mining museum itself?

      Tour to the salt mine

      The tour at the mine was great and I recommend it. But we ordered a private transport and the pickup time was 9:55 but we should be ready 9:40. At 10:20 I called and asked where the driver was. They checked and told me that the new time was 10:35 but I haven't got any message about that. The car came att 10:40.
