    Wieliczka Salt Mine
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    • You will be picked up from your location by a professional tour operator • Take the staircase of 700 steps to reach the underground mines • Learn about the chapel, witness the beauty of the two lakes and explore the sculptures carved out of rock salt. • Take an elevator to the ground level where you can grab a snack at the snack bar and shop for souvenirs. The Wieliczka Salt Mines have been a major attraction in Krakow because of its ancient history as well as its modern relevance to World War II when the Germans planned to set up an underground armament factory in the mines. The mines are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites and attract several visitors annually from around the globe. Your guided tour around the 3km stretch of the salt mines begins with a descent into the underground mines through a wooden staircase. Once you reach the mine level, your guide will take you around the mines’ labyrinthine passages. St. Kinga’s chapel is one of the most beautiful parts of the tour. Built-in reverence of St. Kinga, the patron saint of miners in and around Krakow, the chapel features an altar and chandeliers carved out of rock salt. You take an elevator to return to the ground level where you can buy souvenirs from the souvenir shop. There is also a snack bar at the ground level if you would like to grab a quick snack. Tour duration – approximately 2.5 hours
