Salt Mine tour

Krakow's World-class Attraction, the Salt Mine of Wieliczka


The Wieliczka Salt Mine, has been worked for 900 years. It used to be one of the world's biggest and most profitable industrial establishments when common salt was commercially a medieval equivalent of today's oil. Always a magnet, since the mid-18th century Krakow's Wieliczka Salt Mine has become increasingly a tourist attraction in the first place. Today visitors walk underground for about 2,000 m in the oldest part of the salt mine and see its subterranean museum, which takes three hours or so.

Nine centuries of mining in Wieliczka produced a total of some 200 kilometers of passages as well as 2,040 caverns of varied size. The tourist route starts 64 m deep, includes twenty chambers, and ends 135 m below the earth surface, where the world's biggest museum of mining is located with the unique centuries-old equipment among its exhibits.

Occasionally concerts and other events take place in the Wieliczka mine’s biggest chambers.

There is a sanatorium for those suffering from asthma and allergy situated 135 meters deep underground in the Wieliczka Salt Mine.
UNESCO has entered the Wieliczka Salt Mine in its World Heritage Register.

Our English speaking driver pick you up from the hotel, apartment, hostel straight to the Salt Mines. Then he will be waiting for you in Salt Mine as long as you wish. The English tour takes 2,5-3hours walking. After visiting mine our driver will take you back to Krakow, wherever you wish.
