Overview

Visit the centuries old Wieliczka Salt Mines that were part of the dowry of the Hungarian princess, Kinga, when she wed Boleslaw the Shy over 700 years ago, making the Wieliczka Salt Mine one of the oldest in all of Europe.

The mine was opened in the 13th century and reaches almost 327 meters below the ground and has over 287 kilometres.

Besides admiring magnificent timber construction, lakes, chambers and majestic corridors, your visit will also have a positive effect on your health. Over the centuries, devout and superstitious miners have carved fabulous figures, monuments and altarpieces out of its salt walls. These amazing works of art, in addition to the mine's historical importance, have earned the Wieliczka Salt Mine a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list.

    Truly Fasinating!

    Arranging pick up was easy, and the journey very pleasant. I had no idea the Salt Mines were that big. After spending two hours there, you have only seen approx. 1% of the mines...
