Full description

Enjoy a combo Vistula River cruise and guided tour of the Wieliczka Salt Mine in Krakow, skip-the-line entry included. Look at the royal city from the deck of a modern catamaran, then go to Wieliczka and admire underground wonders made of salt by the forces of nature and the work of human hands.

Start your day by hopping on board a boat with a heated deck and leather sofas that will make you feel at home, even on cold days. On warmer days, head to the upper platform to enjoy the views while spending time outdoors.

Hear the history of Krakow from a modern boat sound system and watch a multimedia presentation on a 50-inch screen. Look at Krakow from the riverside and spot monuments such as the defensive walls of Wawel with a panorama of the Royal Castle, the cathedral, and the iconic silhouette of a dragon.

Then, change to a bus and drive to Wieliczka, a small town near Krakow, where one of the largest ancient salt mines in Europe (700 years old) is located. The depth of the mine is 340 meters, and the total length of the corridors and tunnels is over 245 kilometers.

The tourist route is over 3 km long and includes over 20 halls, underground lakes, and a multitude of corridors and buildings, including the largest and one-of-a-kind Church of St. Kinga, the patron saint of miners.

The underground church is richly decorated with chandeliers and statues of saints carved out of salt. There is a specific healing microclimate in the mine and a sanatorium at a depth of 135 meters. Get to know this UNESCO World Heritage Site before returning round-trip to Krakow.
