Bochnia salt mine is much, much quieter than Wieliczka salt mine and just as good. There is just one English-language tour each day (now at 10.30 am). There were just the two of us on the three-hour tour and we had an excellent guide. A...More
I usually love underground tours. On this same vacation, we went to the 'Big Pit' in southern Wales, and enjoyed it immensely. Not so Bochnia!
We were really looking forward to seeing another UNESCO world heritage site. I went with my 8-year old son. When...More
This salt mine was in operation until 1990, and that is clearly visible. The expositions are not as flash as in Wieliczka, but it is a much more relaxed, intimate and positive experience. Our guide was a man who was passionate about the mine and...More

Thank you for your visit, greetings from Salt Mine Bochnia :)
We enjoyed our visit a lot. It was our first tip to the Salt mine in Poland. We learned a bit about the history of Poland and the importance of the mines to the wealth building in the past. We enjoyed the mltimedia presentations and...More
A great experience!
That the mine has been converted into an attraction is innovative. Not only did we tour the various tunnels with their displays with the aid of very competent guides. But we stayed overnight in the mine.
Fantastic facilities - contemporary conveniences -...More
It's a great place to visit. The oldest mine in Poland, even older than more famous Wieliczka mine. Three different routes, underground boat trip optional. One can eat, play, sleep ca. 300m below ground. Ride with mine train is exceptional. During march weekend spot was...More
Less crowded (eventhough I visited during weekend), least known but in the same time less spectacular compared to Wieliczka.
There are some unique things like the slide, train, boats which add value to it.
The guide was ok however I would listen more historical facts...More

Thank you for your feedback and very important tips for us. We will certainly consider the words about the historical message.
I had seen this on a website so we made it a must do while visiting the area,our guide was very informative as we descended down to each level,the carvings are brilliant and if you are in the area I would recommend it
Bochnia is very different from Wieliczka in a number of ways. Firstly it is much less busy and seems to not really be geared to tourists. e.g. no online booking. Secondly whereas Wieliczka stuns you with the sheer beauty of the chambers, Bochnia is more...More
Wieliczka is world known phenomena, I do recommend Bochnia though. It's much more intimate experience, less queueing and it's nice to see one day hot-spot before everyone else. They are modern, guides are very competent (I'm... More
Wieliczka is world known phenomena, I do recommend Bochnia though. It's much more intimate experience, less queueing and it's nice to see one day hot-spot before everyone else. They are modern, guides are very competent (I'm not certain about their english though, worth checking) and whole tour is amazing multimedia experience. Besides, it's the only place to offer your boat (!) and tiny train (!!) 100m under the ground.
