What to expect

Book this half-day Wieliczka Salt Mine excursion. A professional, English-speaking driver will pick you up at the meeting point in Krakow and drive you straight to the site, where a local guide will take you through the historic underground city.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine dates back to medieval times and has a history of around 9 centuries of salt exploitation. The tourist route through the mine is located 135 meters below ground and is accessible by stairs, or by elevator on special demand. It is an absolutely unique place to visit and is a must-see during your stay in Krakow.
