Wielickza Salt Mines Tour From Krakow
On this tour, we explore the great pride of so many kings and queens of days long past, which served as the foundation for this great nation’s economic and political sovereignty. The mines remain today one of Poland’s great cultural and historical landmarks.
Established all the way back in the 13th century, it is one of the oldest mines in the world. And although no more salt is extracted from the site, the mine and the underground complex have been preserved in remarkably good condition, making it a world class monument awaiting our exploration. Throughout the kilometers and kilometers of underground passages are secrets to be revealed.
So come along with us and discover within the Wieliczka Salt Mines a vast collection of impressive chambers, chapels, and emerald salt lakes, all serving as an inspiration to artists of all types: sculptures, painters, and writers. And for millions of tourists a year, a mandatory stop in their visit to Poland.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit one of the first places in the world UNESCO designated as a World Heritage site. Join us to find out why!
