Full description
Discover one of the most important industrial sites of the Middle Ages on a guided tour of the impressive Wieliczka Salt Mine. Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Kraków, and then travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned minivan with an English-speaking driver. Meet an English-speaking guide on arrival, and then descend beneath the ground to discover an extraordinary underground art museum. Walk down 800 steps to reach a depth of 135 meters, and experience the cooler temperature as you follow a route of around 2 kilometers through the different chambers. Currently one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments – and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site – the salt mines feature dozens of statues and four chapels the miners carved out of the rock salt, along with extra carvings made by contemporary artists.

The tour was really good I would recommend. I have been in caves before and this felt very open, most of the time you don’t feel like you are deep underground. However the steps at the start are a lot and may make you nervous if you don’t like those kind of things.

The salt mines were interesting and temperature was cool during a heat wave. The only comment I'd make is that our woman English guide didn't speak loud enough PLUS we had a crying baby in our group. Both together..soft spoken leader and crying baby, made it impossible to hear history and disappointing since I'll never have the chance to tour again.

Impressive large high spaces. It is almost too passable and too beautifully made for tourists. Transport by van was comfortable and punctual. Skip the line wasn't arranged, but not a big deal at the time as it wasn't busy. For an even better experience you should choose the smaller group option, this was fine but went very smoothly.
