Full description
Discover the beauty of the underground world with its corridors, chambers and chapels carved in salt. Along 2,5km long route, while descending as deep as 125 meters, you can admire chapels carved in the living salt rock, mythical, historical and religious figures sculpted in salt stones, underground lakes, original mining tools, as well as traces of mining works. Historically, it was a source of polish fortune - nowadays this mine is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Poland. When entering mine you have to walk down 400 steps in total into the fascinating underground of one of the world's oldest salt mines. The last stop in the mine is the souvenir shop and snack bar. From here, a lift carries you back to the surface. After the tour you will be taken straight to your accommodation in Krakow.

Janusz transported us safely from our hotel to the Salt Mine and back safely. Janusz waited for us while we were led on our tour of the mine by a mine staff tour guide.
