A trip to Wieliczka Salt Mine is a great chance to look into the depths of the Earth, combined with a hands-on experience of history of mining. Wieliczka Salt Mine is the only mine that has been working constantly since the Middle Ages and its architecture illustrates all the stages of development in mining techniques in particular periods of history. Thanks to this it completely merits a place on the UNESCO list.

“Magnificent chambers chiselled out in rock salt. Amazing underground saline lakes, majestic timber constructions and unique statues sculpted in salt. Almost 3 kilometres of meandering corridors, 800 steps to climb of which 350 have to be descended to reach the depth of 135 meters underground. Thus it is no surprise that till now, the Tourist Route, the main visiting route of the mine has been visited by 40,000,000 tourists from around the whole world in search of adventures.” – As it can be read on the Mine’s website.

That is not all! The youngest can meet some fairy-tale characters like Good Spirit of the Mine – Skarbnik (the Treasurer) and many others. Besides the Tourist Route, there is also the Miner’s Route, giving you a unique chance to deepen the experience of a real professional miner by putting a working uniform and a helmet on, taking a flashlight, going down in the oldest mining shaft and trying to solve some mysterious tasks.

It is strongly advised to reserve the Miner’s Route earlier, as it enjoys a great tourist interest.
