Discover one of the most important industrial sites of the Middle Ages on a guided tour of the impressive Wieliczka Salt Mine. Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Kraków, and then travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned minivan with an English-speaking driver.

Meet an English-speaking guide on arrival, and then descend beneath the ground to discover an extraordinary underground art museum. Walk down 800 steps to reach a depth of 135 meters, and experience the cooler temperature as you follow a route of around 2 kilometers through the different chambers.
