A Mina de Sal Wieliczka é um dos lugares mais exclusivos em todo o mundo. Durante mais de setecentos anos de gerações de mineiros, um incrível labirinto de túneis subterrâneos e milhares de câmaras foram criadas. E tem mais, eles também decoraram alguns desses túneis com deslumbrantes estátuas esculpidas inteiramente de sais rochosos. É por isso que a mina de sal Wieliczka está entre os doze locais da primeira lista de Patrimônio Mundial da Humanidade pela UNESCO. A primeira lista de Patrimônio Mundial da Humanidade pela UNESCO tinha apenas três locais em toda a Europa.
Really nice tour of the incredible artistry and ingenious designs amazingly all inside this mine shaft with the incredible story all in Salt! Highly recommend taking this tour and the country side views are nice as a bonus.
The sight itself was awesome. The tour company we went through was a tad bit on the rude side. They changed the time of the tour, which was fine. We were walking there, and apparently we were late even though it was before the departure time. They called us and had us stop to tell them where we were which was essentially across the street. Those 2 minutes would have gotten us there sooner. We were having a hard time getting our check at lunch and essentially ran there. It would not have been so bad if the bus tour guide would NOT have made a face and comment when we arrived. If they wanted to leave at 2:50, not 3 PM, then departure time should have been 2:50, or hold the comments. This was our only negative experience in Poland.
This trip proceeded exactly as described. Our guide was very informative enroute to the mine, in the mine itself, and on the trip back to the city centre. The guide moved us along quickly would wait only 5 minutes for a late arrival, who did arrive in time to join us and kept us from dawdling overly long in awe of the wonders of the underground mine. We were unable to take advantage of the complimentary lunch at a nearby beer hall because of our schedule, but that seemed like a great additional benefit to a trip which already seemed like a good value!
Our guide Sebastián was very good and had a great sense of humor too. He was very informative and spoke perfect English. He took us on the full tour and didn't take short cuts like we saw some guides do (which cut out some of the sights). The bus we took to the salt mines was very comfortable.
This is a really great tour. Well organised and our tour guide Margaret was amazing, so much knowledge. A lot of walking but so worth it. We will book another tour with this company when we come back soon. Thank Cracow City Tours.
