Full description
Book this whole-day Krakow and Wieliczka Salt Mine excursion and discover 2 significant places in Polish history in just one day. Drive from Wroclaw in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle with a professional, English-speaking driver. Choose from a range of languages for the tour in the Wieliczka Salt Mine, and explore the beautiful medieval city of Krakow in English.

Depending on the language chosen, you'll either start in the salt mine, where a local guide will take you through the historic underground city, or begin by discovering the amazing sights in Krakow, like Wawel Castle, Main Square, St. Mary's Church, and the Jewish Quarter.

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 (443 feet) underground and is accessible by stairs only. Admire this unique place, a must-see during your stay in Krakow. Benefit from the health-boosting special climate and micro-element-filled air in the mine.

Krakow is Poland’s second-biggest city and was the former royal capital until 1596. During your sightseeing tour, find out how the city has always been a hub of Polish artistic, cultural, academic, and economic life centering on the largest medieval town square in Europe.

Have a long look at the cobbled Main Square (Rynek Główny) along with some other noteworthy landmarks, such as the Cloth Hall and the buildings of the Jagiellonian University, one of the world’s oldest universities. Make your way to the Kazimierz district, the old Jewish quarter. Take in this atmospheric neighborhood, and learn how some scenes from the movie “Schindler’s List” were filmed here. The tour concludes with return to Wroclaw.
