About
Visit one of the world’s oldest working salt mines that has been producing table salt for over 700 years! Your English-speaking guide will take you 140 meters underground on a 2.5-hour journey into the Wieliczka Salt Mine. The more than 2.5-kilometers long route is full of chambers with amazing carvings, statues, mining machines, and equipment, where everything is made of salt. To reach the first level of the mine, which is 64 meters underground, you have to descend a wooden stairway with 378 stairs. At the end of the tour, you’ll travel to the surface by elevator.

Dreadfull
Nov. 2021 • Couples
I found this very dull, and wanted to leave, but you can't. There was a huge que to get the lift out, which was a metal box where they squeeze in too many people so you are crushed against strangers. It was scary and not in a fun way!

The history was boring, its a salt mine where nothing intresting happened and has been used as a tourist attraction for a long time. There was a few rooms which were impressive but not worth wasting 3 to 4 hours to see these. If you go on a busier day, I think it would have been a nightmare.

I have been to several mines and carrvans which I enjoyed, but this is not done well.

Well worth a visit
The salt mines are definitely worth a visit if you're in Krakow. The mines are very interesting, accessible to tourists and made very interesting thanks to the guides. A part of the history of this fantastic region of Poland!

Salt mine
Nov. 2019 • Family
Really well organised trip, picked up at castle, 30mins to salt mine.
Once here we were given audio sets and then taken down.
It’s not a tour for someone with any walking difficulties .
When we first started the tour I was a little underwhelmed, but as it went on and further in it was amazing!

Cannot believe that’s all underground and totally made of salt !
Well worth a visit .

Beautiful salt mine
Feb. 2020 • Couples
visited here with my husband. we got picked up from a meeting point given to us from our tour operator.

We arrived at the salt mine, given headset so we could easily hear the tour guide. we started by heading down the many steps to get to the mine, be warned there is a lot of steps and walking involved!!

unfortunately we had a group of girls in our group that were very loud and offer spoke over the guide meaning i missed some history. the tour guide did ask the girls numerous times to be quiet, but they’d all had quite a bit to drink.

apart from this the tour guide was very informative and gave us plenty of time to look round and take pictures.

i think it’s a must see as the mine has some beautiful parts to it and the photos don’t do it justice!!

Disappointing!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Not really the trip for me. Travel was easy with the organised tour. We did the tourist trail, perhaps the miners tour on our own would have been better. Yes, the skill is tremendous but we were rushed through each area, our headphones continually broke up so we missed a lot the guide had to say. The guide on the tour following us was extremely rude when we stopped to take photographs as he wanted his tour into the area. Straight onto our bus at the end, leaving no time to have a look at the area the mines are located in. This is a tour we would advise going without a guide...personal choice.

This review has a wrong location it should be writing here: "Wieliczka Salt Mine" attraction. This is a personal reflection about visiting Mine. We contacted a person who wrote this review in order to remove it from my site but no response!!

Amazing
The salt mines are amazing but be aware there is a downward spiral staircase to descend and it seems to go on forever, but once at the bottom it was like another world. There is a fair amount of walking and stairs to go down but the views are astonishing. The lift to go up is very small and claustrophobic with rapid speed. Would recommend the tour but it helps to be fairly fit.

Had a wonderful trip to the salt mines in Krakow. Collected on time, dropped off on time and a brilliant visit in the middle. When they say there’s a lot of stairs they’re not kidding - at least they’re pretty all down! Well worth a visit
