Traveler Reviews

    È una delle più antiche miniere di sale al mondo, patrimonio dell'unesco, con una profondità di 327 metri e i suoi corridoi e gallerie arrivano a 287 km. Noi abbiamo visto solo l'1%...i minatori, oltre all'estrazione dell'oro bianco, scolpirono statue con figure religiose e non direttamente nel sale e vi si trovano laghetti sotterranei e cappelle. Al suo interno anche una vera chiesa di sale dove si celebrano ancora riti religiosi. Insomma un meraviglioso mondo sotterraneo salato...#wieliczka #cracovia #sale #cristallidisale #beatakinga #orobianco

    Ingen tvil at det var imponerende mengder salt, dybder på gruva, størrelse, alt grafikken, statuer osv, men hundreganger fortalte vitser frisker ikke opp eller kjedelig fortelling.

    Escursione acquistata su get your guide. Tutto ok per organizzazione e tempistiche. Meritano una visita le miniere se si è a Cracovia, tour con guida in italiano molto chiaro. Durata ca. Tre ore e mezza compreso un'ora per il trasporto in pulmino. Molto particolare la gita.

    We took this tour with my wife and 11 year old daughter. Alicja was great to work with, she picked us up promptly at our hotel in a Mercedes-Benz sedan. For the 30 min trip to the Salt Mine she kept us entertained with Polish traditions and stories. The short walking tour of the town of Wieliczka was very nice and she is quite knowledgeable about the area. We loved the pictures in the town square - she had a great idea for those. Tour of the mine was very interesting and we all enjoyed it. Alicja was right there to meet us at the end and take us back to our hotel. A very enjoyable tour!

    Alicja was a great guide. She picked us up on time in a comfortable Mercedes, and provided us with water and snacks for the short drive to Wieliczka. She took us on a nice walk around the town, and got us to our salt mine tour on time as well. We returned to our hotel right at the pre-arranged time.

    Definitely recommend if you are looking for a trip to the Salt Mines, or to any of the other locations they go.
