About

Visit the legendary salt mine of Wieliczka near Krakow for a half-day guided tour and admire the beautiful salt sculptures made with “white gold”.



Our driver will pick you up from the agreed place and you will take a comfortable, air-conditioned bus to the city of Wieliczka, where the mine is located. The journey will take approximately 30 minutes. On site, you will meet your guide, who will take you on an underground adventure. The tour starts with going down the wooden stairs to a depth of 65 meters, where the guide will explain the rules of sightseeing and safety on the tourist route, the time of visiting underground is about 2 hours. 


The tour is based on an underground walk through the corridors and chambers of the mine. Some of the chambers are dedicated to, for example, famous people who visited the mines (Chopin, Gothe) or how the style of work and technology of miners changed. The highlight of the tour is a visit to an underground chapel considered to be the most beautiful in the world. St. Kinga, where the artists carved a church in salt. There will be a short break there for photos and toilet. 


We move further along the corridors to see, for example, an underground lake, a bark in which the world’s first underground balloon flight took place, and to listen to an underground concert of classical music. At the end of the tour, we will visit the largest chamber of the mine, where, dance balls or sports events take place. At the very end of the tour, you will have the opportunity to buy souvenirs related to the mine and ride a real mining elevator back to the surface. 


Our driver will take you back to Krakow. The journey will take 25 minutes.  The Wieliczka Salt Mine, is on the UNESCO list of world monuments, has been extracting salt for over 700 years and is one of the most beautiful facilities of this type in the world. While being in Krakow, it is simply worth visiting.
