Day 3

Today, visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, to see the underground world of the oldest salt mine in Europe with its beautifully carved chambers, chapels and an underground lake: all made in salt. The Wieliczka mine is often referred to as "the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland". In 1978 it was placed on the original UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

Discover the wonders of this infamous salt city. The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to a depth of 64 metres! You’ll be led through a number of chambers and see underground lakes, shrines and salt monuments. The underground labyrinth covers 9 levels at 64 to 327 metres below the surface of the earth. Nearly 2,400 chambers are connected with sidewalks, for a total length of 245km. The first tourist trail in Wieliczka was established at the Turn of the 19th century. The trail leads through numerous drifts and galleries where evidence of mining activity has been preserved. You’ll also see examples of sacred art and themed compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends surrounding it. Wieliczka is also home to the world's largest mining heritage museum, with a collection of unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today. The tour ends at a level that’s 135 metres below the surface, and you’ll return to the surface by elevator.
