    Wieliczka Salt Mine
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mine will begin in the city centre or at your hotel in Krakow. Wieliczka is only a short distance, 10km away from Kraków. After a 30 minutes’ drive you will be there to begin your 2.5-hour wonder through the network of underground tunnels and labyrinths. You’ll have to take approximately 360 steps down to the mine. Down in the mine there is a specific micro climate. Due to the high iodine content it is helpful in the treatment of respiratory problems. The tour of the mine is guided by experienced professionals who will tell you all about the local history, legends and many interesting facts about the mine.

A thoroughbred enjoyable and informative tour with excellent guide. The museum was well presented but be aware you need to be quite fit to do this as you cover a king distance walking over 3 hours.

A marvel
Jan 2020 • Solo
It is amazing that people manually excavated to a depth of over 300 meters below ground in what you would call a labyrinth of tunnels and vast chamber's at extreme hight too. The structure is wondrous. I will not say what has been created at the depths on several levels as it will spoil visitors going to see such feet’s achieved. By the way you walk down but come back up in one of the original mine lifts, so don’t panic.
Well worth the visit. Just to let visitors know there is restoration work going on at the extreme depth. I was allowed and other tourists, with a guide down to 165 meters.

Spectacular place to visit but be prepared for a staircase descent of 400 steps. It goes in a square spiral. The lift back up is interesting - they squeeze (quite literally) 9 of you in to a cage.

Oct 2019 • Friends
Whilst visiting Krakow I highly reccomended taking the walking tour of the salt mine. I was not to bothered about going but really glad I went. This is a 2 hour tour which explores various chambers within the mine. It is accessible to most as one of our party is partially sighted.(allowed to use the lift) It does however have many steps (managable) and no problem. I will not spoil it by telling you what you see but this is well worth the visit.

Can be a little rushed

Very informative and knowledgeable guide. Ask for the appropriate head set at the beginning of the tour. They predominantly use a single in ear ear piece. However they have a small selection of over ear headphones. There's lots of walking (obviously!) so bring your pedometer!!! Well worth the walk.

Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a little way out of central Krakow but easy to get to in an uber.
A very different experience, you go down to about 135m below ground, visit lots of different tunnels and chambers including an extremely impressive chapel. The guide told us lots of interesting information not only about the mine but the local area and history of poland too. The tour takes about 3 hours but is definetely worth taking a chunk from your city break!
