What to expect

Visit: Wieliczka Salt Mine, Jana Mikolaja Danilowicza 10, Wieliczka 32-020 Poland

Meet your guide 15-minutes prior to your chosen start time at Wieliczka Salt Mine. Experience the underground labyrinth that stretches over nine levels at 210 to 1, 073 feet (64 to 327 meters) below the surface of the Earth. The maze of nearly 2, 400 chambers is connected with sidewalks that have a total length of 803 feet (245 km). Visitors are led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines, and salt monuments. The salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites (1978).
Wielicza Salt Mine is the world's largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today. 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 443 feet (135 meters) below the surface before taking an elevator back to the surface at the end of the tour.

Great trip, the visit is really worthy. The visit is amazing, two hours (plus an optional free 1-hour-visit to museum) in a great environment. It is shocking how well preserved are these galleries in the underground. Discover Cracow prepared everything well so we had not to worry about anything.

Really enjoyed the trip . At times we couldn’t hear the tour guide as the group was very large and the signal for the earphones wasn’t great, this a little disappointing . Fantastic place and well worth a trip
