    What to Expect
    Meet your guide 15-minutes prior to your chosen start time at Wieliczka Salt Mine. Experience the underground labyrinth that stretches over nine levels at 210 to 1,073 feet (64 to 327 meters) below the surface of the Earth. The maze of nearly 2,400 chambers is connected with sidewalks that have a total length of 803 feet (245 km).
    The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to the depth of 210 feet (64 meters). Visitors are led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines, and salt monuments.
    The first tourist trail in Wieliczka was established as early as at the turn of the 19th century. A couple of centuries later the salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites (1978). The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends.
    Wielicza Salt Mine is the world's largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today. Moreover, the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies.
    The trip finishes at the level of 443 feet (135 meters) below the surface before taking an elevator back to the surface at the end of the tour.

    If you are happy to queue to get in then queue to get out it’s worth a visit. The guided tour is quite rushed and we were often pushed on by the grumpy tour guide behind us! Not much time given to take photos (you...More

    Had an English Guide . She seemed bored and didn't point out anything of interest, "Here are some stairs", "This is a statue the miners made". The tour group was far to big and couldn't hear anything, even with the radio mic/headphone. I came here...More

    Going back up is fine you are in an enclosed lift. My partner is scared of heights and was fine. The first lot of steps (300 +) were enclosed so you didn’t see the height. At times you are on stairs where you can see down... More
