We wanted to visit the salt mine because it was recommended by family members who said it was amazing. We were completely underwhelmed by it. This was due in part by the monotonous voice of our guide. Maybe we were spoilt after the brilliant free walking tour guides in Kraków? The historical displays in the first part of the mine... More

Didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. A tour that takes you 135meters under ground to look at the beautifully carved and created works from the old salt mine. You can also find a bar and restaurant down in the mine. Our tour guide was really funny which also helped the whole experience.

We took a train to this place and bought individual tickets, which worked out to be quick and much cheaper than going by a private tour. The tour takes you up and down the mines and you get to see the major attractions, which are all quite interesting. There are others tours, like the miner's tour (longer and more adventurous)...

If you have a complete free day, like to walk for miles together, have loads of patience and do not really care much for lack of directions, then this IS your cup of tea ! I wish they shared about the difficulties of the miners while they were at work at the mine or dedicated some space them. The cathedral... More

Salt mine with beautiful statues and amazing depth. U get to walk around a bit and explore the tunnel with a guide. U dont have to book beforehand and we got in the cave in about 45min from arriving. Great except too many shops trying to sell the same souvenirs, inside the cave itself.

Amazing caves, the visit is definitely worthy. I was particularly astonished by the church that was built inside the mines.
