Wieliczka Salt Mine (Kopalnia Soli) Tours

1,558 Reviews
Wieliczka Salt Mine (Kopalnia Soli)
An eerie world where everything has been carved from salt blocks, the Wieliczka Salt Mine (Kopalnia Soli) is made up of a labyrinth of tunnels, the deepest of which lies 1,075 feet (327 meters) underground. The ancient UNESCO World Heritage site is a major part of Poland's salt mining history, one of the country's most popular attractions, and one of the world's oldest salt mines, having produced table salt from the 13th century until 2007.

The Basics
Three of the mine's nine levels are open to visitors. Explore these upper areas and see underground lakes, pits and chambers that have been made into detailed chapels, and an array of statues and monuments, all carved from salt. The mine's claim to fame is its ornate Chapel of St. Kinga, made entirely of salt—from the chandeliers to the altarpieces—over the course of 30 years. Wieliczka is a popular site for travelers to Krakow, often visited on a half-day trip with a tour guide or combined with a trip to the nearby Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Visitors to the mine are guided in groups, with most salt mine tours lasting two hours. 
  • To avoid long lines often seen in summer, book your tour in advance.
  • Tours through the mine involve walking about 1.25 miles (2 km) and descending dozens of stairs (the return trip up is by lift).
  • Temperatures are cool below ground, so dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes.
  • Admission to the onsite Krakow Salt Works Museum is included with mine entry.

How to Get to Wieliczka Salt Mine
While the easiest way to arrive from Krakow is via a guided tour, buses to Wieliczka run from Krakow’s main post office every 10 minutes and drop passengers off at the bottom of the road leading up to the mine's entrance. Trains between Krakow and Wieliczka depart every 45 minutes—the Wieliczka train station is about one mile (1 km) from the mine.

When to Get There
The most popular months to visit the salt mine are July and August, though it is open year-round. During these summer months, English-language tours depart every half hour between 8:30am and 6pm. At all other times of year, six to eight English tours are offered daily.

From Krakow: Auschwitz-Birkenau and Salt Mine with Private Transfer

star-5
Auschwitz-Birkenau - the largest concentration and extermination camp founded by Nazi Germans, established in 1940 is a reminder of what happened in Europe during World War II. It is a place where minimum 1 million people died. Since 1979 it has been listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and it is the only place of this kind found on it. After the visit to Auschwitz and Birkenau or before it (the sequence varies depending on a particular day) head to Wieliczka Salt Mine. See carvings made out in the salt, sculptures, reliefs, chandeliers and chapels. This place is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, it teaches about the work of miners. There is 800 steps to take down (however there are stops on the way and handrails) and after the visit a lift brings you up. Dear traveler, from March 2020 there is a new law in Auschwitz-Birkenau and booking with a lot of time in advance is the only way to be sure about going on this tour. Buying the ticket directly there is almost impossible.
