Full description
Visit one of the most valuable monuments in Poland on this half-day tour. This salt mine in Wieliczka is the only one of its kind in such good condition. Learn how it is also the only salt mine opened in the 11th century that has been in operation continuously.

Almost 300 kilometers of hallways extend across 9 levels, reaching a depth of 327 meters, presenting the evolution of mining. Explore the mine's underground city containing famous chambers and chapels, including the popular St. King's Chapel visited by over one million tourists from all over the world each year.

Step back in time to World War II at the Schindler's Factory museum. Located in the former factory of the industrialist who saved the lives of over 1,000 people during the Holocaust, this site was made famous in the film Schindler's List.
