Meet your guide at Matejko Square in Krakow’s historic center. Board the bus to begin your half-day tour and listen to your leader’s description of the mine history as you travel about 30 minutes to Wieliczka. Once you arrive, you’ll walk to the salt mine and have time for a snack or restroom break.
You’ll then descend the 380 steps to the first level of the mine. Your guide will share information on the rich history of Wieliczka, dating back seven centuries. You’ll discover another world of salt lakes, caves, winding tunnels, and elaborate salt sculptures. During their visit visit travelers will walk 1.8 miles (2.5 km) and climb down 820 steps.
Stop at the underground gift shop for distinctive salt-related souvenirs, then journey back to ground level by elevator. You’ll board the bus to Krakow, where your tour concludes in Matejko Square.
