Wieliczka Travel Guide: 119 reviews and 495 photos

When talking about Wieliczka, it is always association born - thats salt mine! For real, according to UNESCO, it is one of the best preserved salt mines, where you can see many beautiful things inside - sculptures from salt, salt lakes, salt cristals, ecquipment for salt mining, old photos about working in salt mine, even church inside and big restaurant with great atmosphere.

Everything makes this place very special, especially when you think, that it is not so much places in the world where you can visit such museum 100 or more metres below sea level.

Anyway, Wieliczka is not only salt mine, but beautiful city itself, some places can be visited around and all exploration of Wieliczka city and salt mine can take a day - nice daytrip from Krakow.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Unique place, salt things around.
  • Cons:Nothing.
  • In a nutshell:Very good day trip from Krakow and unforgetable experience.

    I've visited the salt mine in nearby Bochnia which is less touristy.

    Great pictures. Right, most visitors don't go to see the old town of Wieliczka which is interesting as well.

    Fabulous start with brilliant photos. Unfortuntaly, I didn't have enough time to visit Wieliczka when I was in Krakow. Perhaps I should return one day ... :-)
