Your hotel in Krakow
Visit the legendry salt mines in Wieliczka 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.
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.
Your route through the mine leads you through galleries and chambers on three levels, from 64 to 135 metres below the ground, including the unique and richly ornamented Chapel of the Blessed Kinga. The route is 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) long and you will have to walk down 400 steps in total.
