Wieliczka Salt Mine
One of Krakow's hidden underground treasures, the Wieliczka Salt Mine is a must see for visitors travelling to the city.
Delve into the depths of the 327 metre deep mine and prepare to be amazed at the centuries old secrets that await at the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visitors can experience the truly magical atmosphere of the salt mine, where even the chandeliers are carved from rock salt that has been dissolved and reconstituted to give a clear, glass-like appearance.
Explore Wieliczka Salt Mine
A labyrinth of underground passages and chambers, the Wieliczka salt mine runs for 14km underground and is home to dozens of statues carved out of the rock salt by centuries of miners. The salt mine dates back to the 13th century and produced table salt right up until 2007.
Perhaps the highlight of the Wieliczka salt mine is the spectacular underground Chapel of Saint Kinga - a vast, cavernous vault carved entirely out of rock salt. Travel deeper into the mine and visitors will find the serene underground lake and wellness centre, noted for its healing properties. After exploring the mine, finish the afternoon with a stop at the miners tavern and sample delicious Polish dishes, all flavoured with the salt from the Wieliczka mine.
