Full description
The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most treasured monuments in Polish cultural history. Over a million tourists from around the world visit the salt mine yearly to see its exquisite carvings and reliefs.

This unique place has been listed on the UNESCO Cultural and Natural World Heritage list since 1978, placing it even higher on tourist's 'to do list.' The miners left in Wieliczka dozens of sculptures and bas-reliefs cut out of the salt, keeping their work alive for many further years. 

There are around 800 steps leading down into the mine. After taking around 350 of them you will find yourself at the first floor underground. After the tour, the lift will take you up towards the exit.
