    4. From Krakow: Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour

    Visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, one of Poland’s top attractions that's on UNESCO's World List of Cultural and Natural Heritage. The half-day skip-the-line tour departs from Krakow. Learn about the salt mine that is the best-preserved site of its type in the world. Opened in the 13th century, it has been in continuous operation since that time. Explore some of the 300 kilometers of hallways extending over 9 levels and reaching depths of 327 meters. See the chambers and chapels in the mine's underground city, including the famous St. Kinga Chapel, visited each year by more than a million tourists from all over the world.

    Our driver krzysztof (hopefully spelt right) was a lovely guy, very friendly and gave us some interesting info on the way to the mines. He collected our tickets and brought us through security and explained the process of which line we needed to be in and what time our tour started (we were there about 30mins early). Our group was much smaller than normal groups due to covid19, there was around 15 of us, and our english speaking guide Elizabeth was lovely, very softly spoken and tried joking with us all even though they might not have always landed. Because she was so softly spoken sometimes it was difficult to hear what she was saying from the back. She was very knowledgeable though and answered any questions the group had other than the information that she provided about the different areas of the tour. Its an interesting day trip. It may not be for everyone though, especially those with mobility issues as there is a lot of walking and a LOT of stairs down to each level.

    It was well organised and worth a visit but as the tours were 30 people it was quite crowded and a little rushed. There is a shop at the exit so wait to buy your gifts until you reach the exit. Take a packed lunch too as not enough time to eat at the restaurant there.
