this was such a unique experience that there was nothing to dislike except other tourists that were there because it was on their tour list and were being disrespectful.

Nearly 600 steps down! My knees ached the next day. Interesting to see but a bit touristic attraction . I would like to have seen it more au naturel! The lift up is very claustrophobic! I did love the salt chandeliers and all the caves.

Me and my boyfriend have been there in August 2010 (I could not choose date earlier than 2014). It was an amazing experience. I've been there twice before too and it's always exciting to visit the Wieliczka.

Awesome for first time travellers but be cautious of the many stairs And the very, very teeny lift. Could also be claustrophobic for some.

Really interesting to see but can get a little busy, would suggest going early in the morning or in winter when it is not the height of season. Good day trip with lots to see and the guides are very informative.

You can book online on their website (look on Google or other search engine) but the tickets are currently the same price as you would pay at the ticket office. I didn't know this before I visited but it would probably have... More
