    Stop At: Discover Cracow Tours, Krakow 31-011 Poland

    Begin your half-day tour with a pickup at your centrally located Krakow hotel at your desired time. Meet your driver, settle into your comfortable private car, and travel directly to the Wieliczka Salt Mine without any stops to pick up other passengers.



    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Wieliczka Salt Mine, Jana Mikolaja Danilowicza 10, Wieliczka 32-020 Poland

    After a roughly 30-minute drive, arrive at the UNESCO-listed mine, leave your driver, and join a guided group tour of this 700-year-old complex of salt-cut tunnels and chambers that extends for nearly 200 miles (300 kilometers) underground.

    Hear how the first shafts were dug in the 13th century and descend the steps to a depth of 210 feet (64 meters) to explore the three upper levels that make up the mine’s tourist route.

    Then, with a guide leading the way, delve into the subterranean corridors, halls and chambers. As you walk, learn about the reputedly health-giving microclimate of this underground complex, and admire the salt-carved monuments and figurines that line the galleries and depict the characters, legends and events associated with the mine's history.

    Along the way, enter the magnificent Chapel of St Kinga – a subterranean church decorated with an altarpiece and chandeliers that are all hand-sculpted from salt. Listen fascinated as your guide recounts how it took two men more than 30 years to create this glittering underground sanctuary.

    Walk past more salt shrines and view the eerie subterranean lake in the Eram Baracz chamber. Then, finish by viewing the displays of mining tools that were used to dig and work the shafts during the late Middle Ages.

    Having explored to a depth of 443 feet (135 meters), ride the elevator back to the surface. Then, bid farewell to your group and meet back up with your private driver.
