Wieliczka Salt Mine - private tour in Krakow

Private tour in Krakow

Tour Price : 70 USD Duration : about 4 hours Languages: english

Wieliczka Salt Mine is a famous tourist destination in Poland. We may combine our private tour in Krakow with a short trip to the Salt Mines, as far as they are located only twelve kilometers from Krakow. It is worth noting that Wieliczka is the oldest salt mine in the whole Europe which started working in the medieval times and is still functioning. In the 80’s it entered the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

According to the statistics millions of tourists and travelers visit this place annually. Along with numerous attractions of the mines there are dozens of statues and an entire chapel carved out of the rock salt. It is truly a breath-taking view! Most of the sculptures are very old and they are supplemented with some new carvings made by well-known artists. As your professional private guide in Poland I would definitely recommend you to visit the famous Polish salt mines. We will enter the system of excavations situated below ground level (approximately 135 meters).  

The whole route is only two kilometers long, but on our way we will explore numerous dark corridors, carved chambers, incomparable chapels and finally underground lakes. The whole walk will last for approximately three hours but you won’t ever forget it. It is worth noting that such legendary figures as Nicolaus Copernicus, Goethe, Fryderyk Chopin, Boleslaw Prus and Dmitri Mendeleyev visited the salt mines. You would be surprised but this place is often called “the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland”. There is also a room for private celebrations such as weddings.

The Salt Mine has brought a lot of profit during all these centuries, but nowadays it could be considered as a masterpiece which contains numerous incomparable works of art.
