Full description
Enjoy round-trip transportation to the famous Wielczka Salt Mine, and take an in-depth guided tour through this stunning Polish Historic Monument, dating back to the 13th century. Witness beautiful chambers carved in salt — including the exceptional St. Kinga’s Chapel — on a 3-kilometer tourist route.  After meeting your English-speaking tour guide/driver at the meeting point in Krakow, enjoy the ride to the nearby town of Wieliczka. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine along with a local guide in your chosen language. The tour inside the salt mine starts by walking down 380 steps, taking you 135 meters underground.   Explore the labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts as you walk through this UNESCO World Heritage site. On the tour, you will also see underground lakes, 4 chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. The salt mine is a truly unique place to visit and a must-see during your stay in Krakow.   After the 2.5-hour tour, a lift will take you from the underground back up to the main ground level. Your driver will then drive you back to the meeting point in Krakow.

Points positifs: -lieu très bien pensé (large allée, lumière, ect..) -tour très bien pensé aussi (animation, explications interessantes, pause toilette) -beauté de la mine (surtout l'eglise !!) Points négatifs: -la rapidité du tour qui ne laisse pas le temps de profiter pleinement de chaque point, quand la mine est pleine de touriste je peux comprendre mais là..

De e hele exursie was goed georganiseerd. Alles was goed begeleid en sloot goed op elkaar aan. De zoutmijnen zelf zijn zeer de moeite waard. Er is heel veel interessants te zien. De gids Bart was een enthousiaste jonge man die op een prettige manier, luid en duidelijk (vanwegen corona zonder geluidsapparatuur) de groep informeerde en in de gaten hield. De mijnen zelf zijn zeer goed onderhouden. De trappen en paden zijn goed toegankelijk voor mensen die 'goed ter been' zijn.
