Full description
The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most treasured monuments in Polish cultural history. Over a million tourists from around the world visit the salt mine yearly to see its exquisite carvings and reliefs. This unique place has been listed on the UNESCO Cultural and Natural World Heritage list since 1978, placing it even higher on tourist's 'to do list.' The miners left in Wieliczka dozens of sculptures and bas-reliefs cut out of the salt, keeping their work alive for many further years.  There are around 800 steps leading down into the mine. After taking around 350 of them you will find yourself at the first floor underground. After the tour, the lift will take you up towards the exit.

Highly recommended, you walk a bit but it's worth it, it's quite cold so it would be better to bring a jacket. The package does not include the visit to the museum which takes place at the end of the tour of the mine and is free, you must agree with the agency that manages the booking.

A software problem caused me inconvenience once there for this visit which had not been validated ... only the hotel / mine transfer had been taken into account. It had to parley for several hours in local language (not easy) or in English to make it clear that the price paid (88 € For 2 people) included the transfer plus the visit. We ended up being heard!

Esperienza molto bella. Ci hanno posticipato l’appuntamento il giorno stesso ma siamo stati avvisati tempestivamente. La nostra guida italiana troppo simpatica e carina. Alla fine del tour c’è l possibilità di fare un’altro piccolo giro senza guida ma non siamo riusciti perché fuori ci aspettava l’autista che aveva i tempi stabiliti per riportarci a casa.
