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.

    What an amazing and beautiful place. Margaret our tour guide at the mines was so educational and engaging with explaining the history behind the mines. David our driver made sure we was looked after during our journey to and from Wieliczka.

    leuke trip. Het is absoluut de moeite waard. ik zou een score van 5 hebben gegeven als het lopen naar de lift niet zo ver zou zijn geweest.
