It was an experience, but due to the many visitors we had the impression that we were just being passed through. Especially when the guide handed us over to someone else

The site is awesome, but the guide was not giving that much information. We felt a bit rushed without having the time to really enjoy and understand the site. There was no time for questions so we still had questions after the guided tour.

No Quietvoxes & large group is a deadly combination. The guide always started to speak with half of the group far away and unable to hear her and even if we flocked around her it was not easy to hear. And I understand why, she needed to manage the timing and with a large group that is difficult. But honestly there wouldn't be much difference if no guide present I couldn't get much information. The mine is huge above imagination, very impressive and I'm happy to have seen it. But it can be very tiresome to walk under the ground for 2 hours and it takes a great guide to entertain you. But even the best guide can't do it without a proper equipment and in a large group. Our guide wasn't bad but also wasn't great. With no whispers (Quietvoxes) and round 40 people in the group she had no chance to make it enjoyable. Everyone was already seeing themselves above the ground.

Die Organisation war super, wir haben den Treffpunkt nicht sofort gefunden und wurden dann mehrfach angerufen. Auch die Führung war sehr interessant. Alles sehr gut organisiert!

L'originalità della visita: non càpita tutti i giorni di visitare un sito produttivo in cui gli uomini, nel corso dei secoli, hanno saputo coniugare la centenaria tecnica estrattiva con il rispetto per l'ambiente che offriva la preziosa risorsa del sale e con quello per gli uomini e gli animali; traguardi raggiunti anche grazie alla ferrea fede cristiana del popolo polacco.

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.
