Step by Step

Enjoy an organised transfer for groups of around 35 people by air-conditioned minibus from Krakow to the Wieliczka Salt Mines. On this approximately 4-hour guided tour you will take an exciting journey into the depths through chambers, corridors, salt chapels and lakes.

Throughout this 3 kilometre tour, 135 metres underground, a local guide will take you through the historic underground city with its many wonderful stories and legends.

More than 300 kilometres of galleries, amazing underground lakes and hundreds of rooms decorated with sculptures make the Wieliczka salt mines one of the most visited places in Poland. This monument, a World Heritage Site since 1978, is the only facility in the world that has been in operation since the Middle Ages.

You will see beautiful chambers, part of which are chapels and one of which has as its patron saint St. Kinga, one of the most popular saints in the country. The chapel of St. Kinga is one of the biggest attractions of the whole mine. It is a gigantic church, some 1,000 square metres in size, built from thousands of tons of ore and featuring a huge statue of John Paul II, illuminated by large chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
