  • Feel the amazing atmosphere in the chambers with statues made of salt
  • Visit the Chapel of the Blessed Kings
Full description
Starting at the Wieliczka Salt Mine main gate, an English-speaking tour guide will hand you your entrance ticket and your tour will begin. The group will then descend the 378 stairs 64 meters down to level 1, where you will receive a brief explanation about safety regulations in the mine.

Following this, your English-speaking guide will take you 140 meters deeper underground for a 2.5-hour tour almost 3 kilometers in length. The tour consists of a regular tourist route during which you will discover long corridors, unique chambers with amazing carvings, and statues made of salt. You will hear of the legend of St. Kinga and see her amazing underground chapel, as your guide explains to you the miners' daily routines.

You will have an opportunity to get to know everything about salt extraction whilst hearing stories about past times when salt was referred to as "white gold". At the conclusion of the route you will be granted time to explore the souvenir shop and snack bar, and from there you will return to the surface with the high-speed lift.

organisation CATASTROPHIQUE ! Nous avions réservé un billet pour 15h50, le guide nous appelle à 12h45 en disant "vous êtes où? je vous attends pour récupérer les billets". Donc première erreur de la part du tour, non réglée puisque finalement sur nos billets électronique il était noté 15h50 or la visite commençait à 15h30 officiellement !!!! Nous avons dû appeler/voir finalement 4 personnes différentes pour régler le problème. NÉANMOINS site incroyable, une fois que nous avons pu y entrer. Notre guide Evelyna (?) était top. Casque non nécessaire car espace confiné et son de bien meilleure qualité !
