Full description
Book this half-day Wieliczka Salt Mine excursion and a professional, English-speaking driver will pick you up at your Krakow hotel and drive you straight to the site, where a local guide will take you through the historic underground city.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine dates back to medieval times and has a history of around 9 centuries of salt exploitation.

The tourist route through the mine is located 135 meters underground, and is accessible by stairs, or by elevator now on special demand. It is an absolutely unique place to visit and is a must-see during your stay in Krakow.

One of the major benefits of visiting the Salt Mine is the health benefit of its special climate and its micro-element filled air.
