Wieliczka

3.8
Best known as the site of one of the world's oldest salt mines, Wieliczka receives nearly a million visitors each year. Located just a short drive from Krakow's city center, the World Heritage-listed mine remained in operation for over seven centuries, finally shutting down in 2007. Today, the mine serves as a museum, allowing visitors to explore a ghostly underground world of elaborate salt chambers and deep pits hand-carved by generations of miners. Wieliczka itself remains a compact town within Krakow's metropolitan area, featuring several architecturally significant wooden churches designated as national historic monuments. Wieliczka is in Lesser Poland Province. Add Wieliczka and other destinations in Poland to your travel plans using our Poland itinerary builder website .
