Witness beautiful chambers carved in salt on a 3 km underground route. After your hotel pickup in Krakow, enjoy a shared transfer ride to the nearby town of Wieliczka. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine along with a local guide. Start the tour inside the salt mine by walking down long sets of steps, taking you 135 meters underground and through labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts. See underground lakes, 4 chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Experience a unique place to visit and a must-see during your stay in Krakow.

    What an amazing and beautiful place. Margaret our tour guide at the mines was so educational and engaging with explaining the history behind the mines. David our driver made sure we was looked after during our journey to and from Wieliczka.

    leuke trip. Het is absoluut de moeite waard. ik zou een score van 5 hebben gegeven als het lopen naar de lift niet zo ver zou zijn geweest.
