Full description
If you want to feel an amazing vibe and learn about the history of unique salt mines, visit this labyrinth of corridors, caves and chambers carved out of the rock at Wieliczka. Wieliczka Salt Mine is a perfect day out, having been in operation since the 13th century. The mine today has been visited by more than 40 million people and was recognized as one of the original World Heritage Sites named by UNESCO. It is a very unique and obligatory place to see, only 10 kilometers from the center of Krakow.

Expérience très enrichissante et incroyable. Je conseille fortement cette activité elle en vaut la peine. Guide français au top, ainsi que notre taxi Weronika qui est venu nous chercher à l’heure et nous a déposer à l’heure aussi et devant notre hôtel. À savoir, quand la visite est terminé vous devrait un peut marcher (7min environs) pour retrouver le bâtiment principale de la mine de sel.

Salt mines was fantastic experience, the driver was prompt, even provided a bottle of water and croissant for the journey. Upon arriving our driver had our paper tickets ready for us, providing a collection time. Our tour guide spoke good english and was very funny!

We were 40 minutes early before the Tour started. Waiting outside in the cold was not so nice.
