Was expecting this to be out in the middle of know where but it is in the middle of a small village 15-20 minutes from Krakow centre.
Tour took about 2 hours. You wear head sets so the guide doesn't have to shout.
You start by descending 400 winding stairs into the mine. It's all very sturdy wooden staircases and you get dizzy!
We had a very good guide called George - think the butler in a vampire movie.
There's not much you can say about a mine full of salt so it was about the types of salt, when it began and finished, who owned it, etc. There are dummies/manikins portraying working and various chapels that were built inside.
You can get food and drink inside at the cafe and buy salt related gifts.
Not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't something you must do if you go to Krakow apart from saying you went there.
