Tour 8

Wieliczka Salt Mine

 

This morning you will embark on a sightseeing tour to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Wieliczka Salt Mine only ten miles southeast of Krakow. Salt was discovered here in the 11th century and thereafter mining rights and hence incomes were strictly controlled by the crown. 

You will descend 150 feet into the network of chambers and lakes that have been carved out over the centuries.  The highlight of the mine is the underground Chapel of the Saint Kinga. Your guide shares a tremendous amount of history and legend with you.

After sightseeing you will be transferred back to your hotel in Krakow.
