Wieliczka tour from Krakow

When in Krakow, take the opportunity to visit 15-kilometre away Wieliczka to see one of the most popular tourist attractions in Poland - the Salt Mine. It is the only mining facility in the world that has been open all the time from the Middle Ages up until now. The Wieliczka mine has 9 levels, the first of which is 64-meters deep and the last one is 327 meters below the surface of the earth.

After climbing over 800 stairs and going 135 meters down, we enter an amazing world of salt. The most famous attractions are: Chapel of St. Kinga with fantastic sculptures made of salt, salt lakes, salt caves, chambers, sidewalks and excavations with, among others, historic mining equipment from past eras. Currently, the picturesque mine workings are used for tourist, museum and medicinal purposes. The mine has a truly unique microclimate; the temperature throughout the year is constant and ranges between 14-16 degrees Celsius. Climatic conditions in the mine are conducive to allergy treatment and respiratory diseases. For this particular reason, the underground spa was made. Wieliczka holds many events which are seemingly impossible to organize underground. There was already an underground balloon flight, entered Guinness Book of Records and a bungee jump in the Stanislaw Staszic chamber. On top of that, Polish sailor Mateusz Kusznierewicz swam on his board 104 meters under the surface on the lake filled with brine. In 1978, Wieliczka was included in the First World List of Cultural and Natural Heritage of UNESCO. By order of the President of the Republic of Poland in 1994, it was recognized as a Historical Monument.
