Found 4th Jul 2010
Anyone ever been to them, reading that they are 350 metres deep and have visitor passages of 3.5km (only 1% of the total passages) and can take 3 hours to view.

everything is hand carved from the rock salt there and that they are some beautiful architecture and statues all carved from the rock.

is it a good visit or is 3 hours to long once you see one room you have seen them all kind of thing.

It was Wielickzka I went to, was there 4 days, lovely place, cheap food & beer & gorgeous women, would say 4/5 days would be enough, go see Auchwitz too, very sobering place tho do it on the last day !

A group of us went to Krakow recently, half of us did the salt mines half of us did Auschwitz. I did Auschwitz but the ones who went to the salt mines were really underwhelmed by it all.

If you go to Krakow you really should see Auschwitz.

Krakow is the place to go.......visit the bunker bar and aqua e vino for great food.

I went to Wieliczka and to be honest, I was a bit bored. It was just 'now we're in another chamber...look at this statue of [insert person here] that's made out of salt' over and over again. The only impressive bit was the chapel, that was pretty.
