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

Great adventure with multimedia displays, train ride and ship cruise on salty river. 200 metres under ground walking along corridors carved in salt is really impressive.

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

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

Great place, less crowded than Wieliczka. Wieliczka salt mine was like a huge supermarket during weekend, while in Bochnia I was under the ground with a group of 7 people. The contact with a guide was more private, intimate. It was more magical and vibrant....More

It is an amazing place to visit. Amazing underground trip allows to avoid terrible air pollution in małopolska during colder days.

Very interesting and historical place. Definitely worth a visit even though it's not as popular or as its sister mine Wieliczca., although it is around 40 years older. We also got to slide down a massive wooden slide!

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
