The Salt Mine in Bochnia is the older sister of Wieliczka. Few people know that it is also on the UNESCO list. It is worth knowing that the Salt Mine in Bochnia is the only mine in Poland that offers visitors an underground crossing by boat. Bochnia is a 45-minute drive away from Krakow. For many years, the mine in Bochnia was a powerhouse, and like Wieliczka brought huge profits to the kingdom. Bochnia is associated with the legend of the ring of St. Kinga, which you can find out about during the tour. It was not until the 17th century, the period of wars and economic collapse, that the development of the mine stopped. The Bochnia Salt Mine joined the permanent list of tourist destinations in the early 1990s.
