THE UNDERGROUND LAND OF SALT

We invite you to avail yourself of the unique opportunity to visit the most beautiful nooks of the historic Salt Mine in the town of Wieliczka, active continuously since the Middle Ages. The section of the Tourist Route adapted to meet the needs of people with disabilities is rich with the most amazing works of art sculpted throughout the many centuries of laborious miners’ work continued to this day. The Tourist Route – a section of the Mine’s main route – leads down the saline corridors, uncovering the treasures of the underground town. Wieliczka – Disabled Route is a specially designed route through the underground of the Mine addressing special needs and introducing the tourists to the mining world full of majestic chambers and impressive salt statues. The Wieliczka Salt Mine was one of the first among the 12 sites to be included in the first UNESCO World Heritage List. It is one of the most frequently visited tourist sites in the world.
