Bochnia Market Square

Bochnia is one of the oldest towns in southern Poland, situated around 40 kilometres southeast of Kraków. The major attraction is the oldest functioning salt mine in Europe (since the middle of 13th century, although it's being closed now, except for the historic part still open for touristic reasons). Old town has still magic atmosphere.

Get in

There is very good bus connection between Bochnia and nearest large cities. Bochnia is located on the highway Kraków - Przemyśl. Very easy to get there by bus from Kraków, Tarnów or Rzeszów Airport.

Trains to and from Kraków leave every hour and cost around 10 zł (depending on the kind of train).
