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!

One of the most unusual place I have ever been. Good for kids. If you have time take a chance and stay at night in the mine.

I've been there on extreme, normally not accessible, route. It goes deep enough with very tricky ladders, a lot of stairs and small spaces. If you like those kind of attractions, it's definitely for you. In the beginning we had also ridden a underground train,...More

Everybody goes to Wieliczka, which is of course great, but Bochnia salt mine is so much bigger and so much more fun for kids (and adults:)). The trip is entertaining, inter-active, and you learn all you ever wanted to know about mining, but not too...More

We chose a standard tour to the multimedia exposition plus a boat ride. It took us around 3,5 h to finish the tour. At the beginning it was kinda boring but eventually we discovered a long wooden slide and that was awesome!

We visited as a group of 3 (one couple and a friend) and as part of the tour we stayed overnight. The concept is great, the reality wasn't. The walking tour was more than 3 hours long, the guides only spoke Polish and nothing was...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
