This tour starts in Warsaw. You will be picked up by English speaking driver from your hotel. First you will visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, which was built in the 13th century and produced table salt continuously until 1996. Under the ground level you will find salt sculptures, lakes, and unbelievably spectacular chambers.
More than 1 million tourists visit the mine annually – not without any reason. Afterward, your driver will take you for lunch in a local restaurant either in Auschwitz or in Krakow depending on the timing.
In Krakow, a local guide will take you on a tour around the city. You will see among others the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbicane, and ‘Sukiennice‘ (Cloth Hall). The most interesting sight is the Wawel Hill with its Cathedral and Royal Castle, a place of royal coronations, weddings, and funerals.
Some of its oldest stone buildings can be dated back to the 10th century. In a cave at the foot of the hill, on the bank of the Vistula River, Wawel Dragon had his lair – the dragon’s cave is now a popular tourist stop. After the tour, you will come back to Warsaw around 22:00.
