The cathedral itself is nice and has interesting history. However, the whole experience felt a bit touristy, with the light show and other 'attractions'. The movie was educational and I actually liked it, though some others in my group said it was tacky. We took...More

The Salt Cathedral is such a beautiful place where religion, art, and history collide. Regardless of your religion anybody can appreciate the beauty and effort put into this cathedral

I really wanted to love the Salt Cathedral. I've been to a salt mine near Krakow and was hoping this would be just as impressive. Unfortunately it was not. The entry fee for foreigners has been increased to 50k for the basic package. The main...More

You can take this Tour in English or Spanish. Their guides are truly dedicated and proud of this "attraction". It's spiritual in nature only because of the efforts by the miners who believe in Catholism and it was their safety net to go home safely...More
