Wieliczka Salt Mine - Krakowfy Private Tours and Transfers

Once a salt mine (until the early 1990’s, when the mine flooded), it was one of the largest business ventures in Europe a few centuries ago.

 During the 16th century, royal guests began visiting the mine lured by the developing culture and health benefits. Over the years, miners transformed the mine from a typical dark cave into a majestic location. By the 19th century, giant salt-crystal chandeliers lit the underground complex, they’re still today. Striking salt-carved monuments line the chambers alongside displays of historic salt-mining technology, an underground lake, four chapels and numerous statues carved by miners. A visit through the shafts and labyrinth as well as more recent sculptures made by contemporary artist all combined result in world-wide fame of this magical place.
