The tourist route in Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most interesting tourist attractions in Poland.
The trip, during which we find ourselves at a depth of 135 m below the ground level starts in the Daniłowicz shaft.
During the tour we will see chambers carved into the salt, underground lakes and the beautiful chapel of St. Kinga, where they are beutiful salt sculptures. We'll see here, the tools and machinery used by miners. During the tour the guide tells very interesting stories and mysteries associated with the mine.
One of the largest and most popular children's attractions in the mine's is the ride to the ground level in a real mining lift and almost the mandatory verification that the mine walls are really salty.
When planning a trip to the mine is worth to stock up on warm clothing as temperature inside is about 14-16°C, it is worth to wear comfortable shoes because the winding route is nearly 3 km long, and we have to deal with nearly 800 stairs.
Time required to pass the entire route is about 3 hours.
Wieliczka Salt Mine has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1978.
