What to expect

Full of unique beauty and active continuously since the Middle Ages – the historic Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the top attractions in Poland. The underground Wieliczka Salt Mine boasts kilometers of walkways and ramps, magnificent chambers, lakes and breathtaking salt statues. The Tourist Route involves almost 800 steps to climb and over 2 kilometers of meandering corridors. The tour lasts 2 hours, although this part of the Mine makes up for only 1% of the entire underground world!

The Wieliczka Salt Mine was one of the first among 12 sites from all around the world to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the most frequently visited tourist sites in the world!
During your tour, you will reach a depth of 135 meters and learn about the ethos of hard work performed by the generations of miners facing the forces of nature. A perfect example of the mining efforts is the Michałowice chamber, impressing the visitors with its 36-meter tall wooden structure lit by a 6-meter tall and 3-meter wide chandelier made of salt crystals. You will also listen to Frédéric Chopin’s étude in the famous Weimar chamber upon a saline lake, learn about the legend of Duchess Kinga who brought the treasure of salt to Poland, and reach the heart of the Mine – St. Kinga’s Chapel embodying the artistic and mining efforts.
