Since you are traveling to Poland, you would like to see the top-of-the-top places, right? Guess what?We have the most beautiful attraction here in Krakow! Named the first out of 7 Wonders Of Poland....ladies and gentlemen...Wieliczka Salt Mine! 

Enter the salt city with us! Salt Mine in Krakow is an underground labyrinth that stretches over 9 levels  (64 to 327 meters) below the surface of the Earth. A labyrinth of nearly 2,400 chambers is connected with sidewalks with a total length of 245 km. It is an invaluable monument of material culture, placed in 1978 on the UNESCO Heritage List (just a year later Auschwitz Birkenau was put on that list as well).

Most of the visitors of Salt Mine and amazed and... surprised! For example: Have you ever wondered what Paris and Wieliczka Salt Mine have in common? The levels in the mine reach 327 meters underground which is just enough to fit the Eiffel Tower into it! Get to know more about this fascinating place with us.

Memories you'll cherish forever

Krakow Salt Mine Tour will show you the very beginning of salt extraction. During the trip, you will hear a legend about Princess Kinga who is said to be the patron saint of salt miners in Poland and you will find out why. Also: How the mine functioned during World War II?  Who visited Wieliczka Salt Mine throughout the history? What is the title of the movie shot there? All those questions will be answered.

The microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies, so breathe as deeply as you can!
Nowadays the mine serves not only as a monument of culture but also as a venue for underground concerts, theater shows, and various exhibitions.

There aren’t many such places in the world which would show you the amazing history of salt and its importance to Poland’s development. There are even fewer that would offer such a high number of unique attractions like an underground lake or the only church in Europe below the surface of the Earth. This reason alone should be enough to convince you to go there.
