"Wieliczka Salt Mine" Poland Things to Do Tip by Aalo

Poland Things to Do: 398 reviews and 656 photos


"The historic Salt Mine in Wieliczka is the only site in the world where mining has continued since the Middle Ages. Lying on nine levels, its original excavations (longitudinals, traverses, chambers, lakes, as well as lesser and major shafts) stretch for the total of 300 kilometres: reaching the depth of 327 metres they illustrate all the stages of the development of the mining technology over time."

This is really a beautiful place!! One evening trip from Krakow. I left around 4 PM and came back around 8 PM, walking around the mine with the tour guide took about 2 hours. Lots of walking, so better to wear good shoes :)
