Select Date and Travellers
Visit the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine the easy way from Kraków on this organized tour. Don’t worry about figuring out bus timetables or hiring expensive taxis to get to this popular natural and heritage wonder. Learn about the enormous salt cave, its history as a mine, and the amazing carved sculptures on a guided tour through two miles (3.5 kilometers) of tunnels.
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.
