I didn't realize I had to download your app to actualize the tickets. Thankfully, my granddaughter figured it out for me, had room on her phone to download the app and we were able to present the suitable format to the venu. Then we all had a great experience at the salt mines near Krakow. The time spent at figuring all this out did, however, set us back 1/2 hour for the next tour. Another, inconvenience.

We loved how incredible the salt mines were and how deep the whole thing goes and the structures that are within the mines, it was also helped by a fantastic tour guide, cannot recall her name but we were on the 3pm English guided tour on Saturday 6th July

Easy to book online and meeting point was clear, but no information on who to look for/whether we join an English tour (we tried & were told very brusquely that we were not on his list!). The time was past when we were expecting to enter so we were worried that as no-one had checked us in we would be told we were too late. Very confusing, none of the staff knew anything either. Should be far clearer and much more streamlined. The Salt Mines however were absolutely amazing! Be warned though that the exit is not next to the entrance, and no directions given to train station. Google Maps to the rescue!

It was a tour for families with children. I missed the authenticity of a salt mine. I liked the elevator with the pit cage. The price for the tour was clearly too high.

With 800 stairs, a descent of 135m underground, and around 3km of maze-like galleries steeped in secrets and legends, the ancient salt mine attracts millions of visitors across the globe. Join the guided tour to discover beautiful chambers carved entirely out of salt, along with saline lakes, the likes of which cannot be found above the ground. See the unique St Kinga's Chapel, adorned with salt sculptures and reliefs which were crafted by the miners. Some beautiful, glowing crystal chandeliers add to the beauty of the place.

This tour will also give you an interesting insight into the methods of salt extraction, the old tools and machines used for mining, and the means of transport used when the mine was operating from 13th century until the late 20th century.
