Buying tickets in advance online saved us much time. This is a busy attraction with lots of tours (all guided). The tour itself was very interesting, with good explanations. There was sufficient time to see all the salt structures along the way.

My wife and I came here with our 4 years old nephew and really loved it. The entrance always have to include a guide and the English (84.00 PLN per adult) speaking ones cost more than the Polish ones (55.00 PLN per adult). Our nephew came in free due to his age. The English tours leave more or less every... More

This is a must for all visitors. What stunning sculptures in the most spectacular caves. I enjoyed the day immensely. There are shops in the caves for souvenirs and for food stops. Our guide was informative and funny. Very good value for money.

Booked the tour from Crakow through the very professional Discover Crakow". Picked up from hotel at about 9am and started the actual tour an hour later. Very well organised, with groups arranged according to preferred tour language. The mine itself is awesome, with some spectacular sculptures, caverns and displays, all explained very well by a most entertaining guide! I was... More

This is a half day trip. 45mins each way in travel and 2.5 hours there. It's not good for anyone who is claustrophobic or with mobility issues (800 steps) but don't let the stairs put you off. This is a amazing place where you spend all your time 130m underground looking at the most amazing man made wonders. My advice... More

This trip was very interesting our tour guide was very good. At the beginning you have to walk down hundreds of steps (not exaggerating either) to get to the first level and there are more steps that are uneven and slippery so if you have difficulty walking or can't walk long distances this isn't for you. The caves are amazing... More

We visited the mine on the first Sunday of December during a few days in Krakow. The trips are well organised. The mine is quite an amazing place. You really have no idea of the scale and engineering feats hiding underground until you see them for yourself. There are a lot of steps to navigate down so if you have... More

We weren't sure if this was going to be our thing. All I can say is wow! We 135 metres underground and what an adventure. The biggest cavern took 70 years to excavate and it's a stunning space. The tour guides are extremely knowledgable too. Highly worth a visit!

Great visit of several levels of this salt mine, including lots of galleries, stairs, and even an underground cathedral. Available in various languages.

It is so amazing to see so much salt & what they can use it for. The whole tour only took under 2 hours. Travelling time is 40 minutes by bus from Krackow city centre & costs less than 1 euro each way. As we went in the winter, it was easy just to buy the ticket when we arrived.
