Imagine a kingdom located more than 100 meters underground, with large chambers, carved figures and a series of intricate corridors. The Wieliczka Salt Mine is on one hand reminiscent of a fairy-tale land, on the other it is a testament to the hard work of several generations of miners who mined salt deposits day by day. It is a unique monument on a European scale, which makes it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is a must-see on the map of every tourist visiting Krakow. We will overcome the tourist route that leads through the most important corridors and chambers, bringing visitors closer to stories related to the functioning of the mine. You will hear local legends, see machines supporting the work of miners and you will see more than 20 unusual, underground chambers, along with the spectacular chapel of St. Kinga and the underground lake.
Remarks – persons with reduced mobility, please contact us in advance so that the route can be adapted to individual possibilities. The temperature in the mine is around 16 degrees Celsius, so during the visit it is worth getting warm clothing. People suffering from claustrophobia may feel uncomfortable while entering the surface of the mine by lift – in this case, please contact and consult with us in advance.
