Wieliczka Salt Mines

The salt mines in Wieliczka offer a one of a kind experience to tourists. It is designed to allow tourists to comfortably travel through the passageways without feeling uncomfortable. The mines have two beautiful lakes and a magnificent chapel of the Blessed Saint Kinga, who is the patron saint of miners around Poland’s capital region.

You will take a flight of stairs (700 steps) to reach the level of the mines and then travel for about 3 km inside the mines to explore the chapel, the lakes and the many technologies used in the past to extract salt from the mines.

There are beautiful sculptures carved out of rock salt and the chandeliers in St. Kinga’s chapel have also been carved out of rock salt. The mines have also witnessed Nazi invasions when the Nazis had planned to turn the underground mines into an armament factory. But this never happened.

Your guide will cover all details and stories as well as myths related to the mines to help you learn in detail about the Wieliczka Salt Mines, which is known to be one of the oldest operational mines in the world.

Duration: approximately 3 hours

Note: During the course of the tour, you will get a break for 30-90min. Brake times may be different due to unpredictable situation which not depend on tour operator (traffic jams, entrance queues, delayed customers etc.)

All above tour durations times are approximate. Total duration of the tour is approximately 10-12 hours, keeping travel and resting time in mind. This is only an approximation and the time may increase or decrease depending on the travellers.

4.3 out of 5

Our guides were fantastic, collected us on time and were informative. Sadly I have to only give it 2 star because when we arrived the ground was frozen and we could barely stand up. As we started the tour in the first block, we were evacuated! This was due to the rain freezing on the ground making it dangerouse, who'd have thought in Poland they'd have ice in winter!! Why they didn't grit the paths, I have no idea. So that was the end of our visit to Auschwitz 1. They closed the other site for the day but our guide took us to see the outside where we were able to actually entre but not view all and not a guided tour. The salt mines were fantastic. I would recommend this tour, it could have been fantastic and the problems were not the fault of the company who did the tour.. let's hope they find some sand for the rest of the winter.

Its hard to give a full and accurate review as we were evacuated from the Auschwitz tour half way round due to the floor being too slippy as a couple of people fell and had quite bad injuries.due to this happening we were told there was no possibility of us going to birkenau as that was closed all day (we got to go after suggesting we go so as to take pics) it did open but by the time it opened there weren't enough time to have a proper tour so we just looked round for half an hour then went the salt mine which was good

fabulous day. Great tour guide, very informative. Whist difficult to face certain things brought up during the tour, I do feel strongly that the need to see and remember this horror is vital. There was a lot of walking and it was a long tiring trip, may be difficult for some.
