In 2013 Bochnia Salt Mine was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Bochnia's undeniable asset is its unique combination of severity, naturalness and state-of-the-art multimedia expositions which never fail to fascinate visitors. After eight centuries of working, it now has a character of an underground town where you can even take a ride by the underground train, slide down the world's longest underground slide and take an underground ferry ride crossing the brine lake flooding the chamber. The wodden boats are listed in the Polish Register of Ships, just like the sea-sailing ships.
After arrival you will descent into the mine by a miner's lift and explore the route mostly on foot but some parts of the distance are covered by a tourist train. During the tour you will have a chance to explore a network of chambers and galleries with unique shapes and geological structure including a horse stable, woodden treadmill expositions and the Saint Kinga's Chapel which is located at the August Level at a depth of 212 m below ground. It is the largest and the best preserved chapel in the Bochnia Mine. The tour ends in the largest chamber, the Ważyn, where you can slide down the world’s longest, 140-metre slide and on Sundays you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy world’s only ferry crossing of an underground chamber flooded with brine. At the end you will come up to the surface by the same miner's lift and we will tak you back to Krakow.
