This is without a doubt a very interesting place with grand chambers dug out in salt. However, and it is a big however, the place is visited by 7000-8000 people per DAY! You have to almost run the whole time and our guide was indeed...More

The Wieliczka Salt Mine is a Must-See attraction when in Krakow. Best to go with a tour guide as it truly adds the value and appreciation of the history and information about the mine. Fantastic place and highly recommend this to anyone.

We visited the Salt Mine at the start of August. It was a really enjoyable experience. When we arrived our group was met by a guide, who took us down the 380 steps to level 1. The guide was very knowledgeable and incorporated a couple...More
