Followers of this blog will know that we like to offer advice on alternative sights away from the crowds. More adventurous tourists therefore maybe more interested in visiting the salt mines in Wieliczka using the Miners' Route. This is accessed at the Regis Shaft (the oldest shaft in the complex) just a stone's throw from the town train station. The idea is that visitors can experience the mines from the viewpoint of what it was like to work in them. This is a wonderful day trip a mere 15 km from the centre of Krakow.
