Definitely a must see if you visit Krakow, the tour guide who brought us there, Jakob, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide at the Salt Mines, Simon, was amazing, such a sense of humour and very informative. The only concern I had was that when we booked and paid for our tour we were not told that this does not include the entrance fee, we had to pay a further 270 zolties between 3 of us, we assumed that the cost included both travel and entrance fee, very disappointed in this.
Picked up promptly from the hotel, lovely comfortable minibus and a very friendly driver. They said to wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking down stairs and not we’re they right. But trust me, it was worth EVERY STEP. It’s such an impressive work of industrial art, and awe inspiring. Very informed tour guide and you are given all the time you need to take in the amazing sights. Definitely worth the money.
After a very long descent down 800 wooden steps we arrived into long corridors with paths leading off in different directions.. Its hard to believe that the sights we saw were actually made out of salt.. The highlight of the tour was the breath taking sculptures.. The religious ones.. The chandeliers.. The statues.. Amazing.. Thankfully we came back up in a lift...
Really enjoyed the salt mine tour, very interesting although the tour was a little rushed but didn’t really detract from the experience.
Really enjoyed our trip to salt mines. Guide was lovely and was very informative. It is a lot of walking down steps but well worth it .
