Starting Destination Meeting Point / Stop

Escape the city for the day on this half-day Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour From Krakow. Learn about the history of the salt mines from your guide and the many complex and beautiful salt sculptures.

You will be picked up from the meeting point and driven to the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to the depth of 64 meters. Visitors are led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines and salt monuments.

Visit the first tourist trail in Wieliczkawhich was established as early as at the turn of the 19thcentury. About a hundred years later the salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites (1978). The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends.
Moreover, the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies.

The trip finishes at the level of 135 meters below the surface. Visitors return to the surface by lift.

When the visit ends you will be returned and dropped off to Krakow city center (same point as pick up).
