A stunning display of craftsmanship, the 700-year-old Wieliczka Salt Mine continues to attract visitors from all corners of the world.

With this small group tour (maximum 19 people) you will get to interact with your guide and have all your questions answered. An afternoon tour also means that the site will be less crowded and you will have ample space for photos.

The wondrous underground labyrinth contains dozens of statues, three chapels and an entire cathedral carved out of rock salt by miners. Along the route you will catch sight of huge chandeliers constructed entirely of salt and even a replica of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper carved into a salt rock wall.

The mine is spread out on 9 levels and runs as deep as 327 metres below the surface of the Earth. The collection inside includes unique pieces of mining equipment dating all the way back to the Middle Ages.

Interestingly, due to the unique microclimate of the mine, it has a beneficial impact on visitors suffering from asthma and allergies.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel in Krakow 10 minutes before the start of the tour. Board your comfortable coach and enjoy the ride to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, just outside Krakow.

The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to the depth of 64 metres. The trail will lead you through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers. This labyrinthine site consists of 2,400 chambers, vast underground lakes, shrines and salt monuments. The trip finishes 135 metres below the surface, from where you will return to the surface by a traditional mining lift.

You will return to Krakow by coach at around 10:15pm or 7:40pm, depending on the season.
