Wieliczka Salt Mine

Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most precious and fascinating Polish monuments. The first tourist trail in Wieliczka was established as early as at the turn of the 19th century. A couple of centuries later the salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites(1978).

The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where  traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends.

Wielicza is at the same time the worlds largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today.

Moreover, the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies. The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to the depth of 64 meters. Visitors are led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines and salt monuments. The trip finishes at the level of 135 meters below the surface.

Visitors return to the surface by lift.
