Tourists arriving in Kraków for a couple of days certainly want to take advantage of the city’s rich offer without having to choose between one of the world’s most recognisable destinations located in the Kraków region: the Wieliczka Salt Mine and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum. To provide tourists with an opportunity to see both of these places, taking into consideration the limited time of their stay, we decided to combine these two offers into a single one-day trip.
Large items of baggage or backpacks are not permitted on the Museum grounds. The maximum size of baggage, backpacks or purses that visitors may carry on the siteis 30x20x10 cm.
Bring warm clothing and comfortable shoes. Temperature underground ranges between 14° and 16° C.
The Auschwitz Concentration Camp was the biggest Nazi concentration camp and extermination centre. It is estimated that during the period of existence of the camp (i.e., the years 1940-1944) more than 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives on its premises, 90% of whom were Jews inhabiting the occupied territories of European countries. Most of the camp prisoners were put to death in gas chambers, and others were victims of brutal punishments, medical experiments and inhumane living conditions in the camp. A visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum allows you to learn about the cruel fate of these victims and to broaden your historical knowledge of the Holocaust.
Full of unique salt heritage and active continuously since the Middle Ages – the historic Wieliczka Salt Mine is visited by tourists every day, showing the most amazing salt riches sculpted throughout the many centuries of miners’ laborious work. The underground Wieliczka Salt Mine boasts kilometres of walkways and ramps, breathtaking chambers and lakes, and extraordinary salt statues. Modern technology can also be seen along the route to educate those eager to learn more about the underground town. A therapeutic microclimate, impressive chambers, wooden structures and perfection to the tiniest detail – the charms of the Wieliczka Mine attract and enrapture over one million visitors travelling from various countries of the world every year.
