What to expect

Visit one of the most precious and fascinating monuments of culture in Poland. The first tourist trail in Wieliczka was established as early as the turn of the 19th century. A couple of decades later in 1978, the salt mine was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries, and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, and theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends.

Wieliczka is the world's largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today. Moreover, the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies. The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to a depth of 64 meters. You will then be led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines, and salt monuments. The trip finishes at the level of 135 meters below the surface and at the end of the tour, you will return to the surface by lift.
